Part II of our Cancer and the Workplace Webinars: Returning to Work.

We’re excited to welcome back Cancer and Careers and Navigating Cancer Survivorship from our Part 1 segment, Working During Treatment. In this segment, Rebecca Nellis and Monica Bryant will teach participants how to navigate returning to work by addressing issues such as resume gaps, interviews and maintaining an online brand. Additionally, they will discuss state and federal laws that may provide protections for cancer survivors and caregivers during the return to work process, including access to reasonable accommodation and intermittent medical leave.

Our recording of Cancer and the Workplace Part 1 – Working during Treatment is now available! Presented by Cancer and Careers’ Eva LaManna and Navigating Cancer Survivorship’s Monica Bryant, Part 1 discussed rights and options for cancer survivors and caregivers in the workplace, including state and federal laws that may provide protections against discrimination, and access to reasonable accommodations and medical leave. In addition to learning about possible legal protections available to them, attendees were presented with practical strategies for working though treatment from how to share the news to combating concentration issues.
