For employers

Thousands of working Australians are diagnosed with cancer every year. If a member of your staff has cancer or is caring for someone with cancer, it can be  difficult to know the best way to support him or her.

The information in this section has been designed to help employers to understand the different aspects of managing cancer in the workplace.

Workplace posters

If one or more of your employees have cancer, they can access free cancer information and support by calling Cancer Council on 13 11 20 and talking to one of our cancer nurses.

You can also download and print A3 and A4 posters for your office notice boards to create a more supportive workplace environment.
