There are different ways your employer can support you at work during treatment or when you return to work. They usually understand that it is a stressful time and try to be supportive.
Many employers make reasonable adjustments for employees, such as allowing flexible working arrangements. They may also change certain parts of your job to make things easier for you.
There are also other ways your employer may be able to support you. They can tell you:
- about different company policies
- if there is an occupational health service or an employee assistance programme
- about useful organisations that could help you.
It’s helpful to have regular meetings with your manager to discuss how you’re coping. You can talk about how to manage any problems or other changes they can make to help you, if needed.
