The article presents ways on how to manage employees with cancer. A worker diagnosed with cancer is automatically considered as disabled by the Equality Act.

Encouraging patients diagnosed with cancer to learn the financial implications if they stop work, in terms of state benefits, pensions and insurance, is suggested.
