Articles - Pressure on employers to support employees with cancer


Government plans put increased pressure on employers to support employees with cancer

 New research1 from Aviva UK Health shows that employers are still finding facilitating the timely return to work of absent employees challenging - particularly when it comes to supporting employees with complex conditions such as cancer.

 New plans announced under the Government's welfare reform bill will see thousands of cancer patients no longer being eligible to receive Employment and Support Allowance after a year if a spouse or partner is working. This is likely to encourage many to return to work before they are ready, making the employer's role even harder.
