Whether you've had to take time off work for treatment, you're working while on watch and wait, or trying to manage work alongside coping with side effects, our video resources can give you the information to help you work with and after lymphoma with confidence. 

Having a cancer diagnosis means you are classed as having a disability - and this is life-long. This means you can tick the disability box on job application forms.

Under the Equality Act 2010, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate based on disability.

Your employer has to give you reasonable adjustments to support your work with your disability 

Reasonable adjustments include:

  • Rest breaks 
  • Time of work for hospital appointments 
  • Working from home
