CANCER VICTIMS’ RIGHTS IN THE WORKPLACE

EEOC has just updated its Q&A about the rights cancer victims have in the workplace.   Among the more relevant questions are 1-  What other types of reasonable accommodations may employees with cancer need? 2- May an employer request documentation when an employee who has cancer requests a reasonable accommodation? and 3-When may an employer refuse to hire, terminate, or temporarily restrict the duties of a person who has or had cancer because of safety concerns?  It is a must read if you are representing cancer sufferers.  Check out Questions & Answers about Cancer in the Workplace and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
