How Does a Breast Cancer Diagnosis Affect Employees in their Workplace?

Without a doubt, a breast cancer diagnosis – or any other cancer diagnosis – is likely to affect employees in many ways. The most obvious way employees could be affected in their workplace by their diagnoses includes their ability to work. In many cases, diagnosed employees must take extended periods of time off work to focus on their health. If extended leave from work is not necessary, it is likely that employees need to take a few days here and there for appointments, tests, and treatment, for example. In general, any cancer diagnosis – including breast cancer – might require a reasonable accommodation.

In addition to the employee directly being affected by the diagnosis, the employee could also be affected by third parties – including employers. Unfortunately, many employers begin treating their employees differently just because of a medical condition. For example, employers might deny employees specific work opportunities, such as promotions or raises, for example. Employers might also demote employees without valid reasons. In severe cases, employers might terminate their employees just because of their diagnosis.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your diagnosis, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. The breast cancer discrimination lawyers at our law firm are ready to provide you with all the information that you need to take action against your employer.

  • The Fair Employment and Housing Act
  • The California Family Rights Act
  • The Family Medical Leave Act
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
