26 October 2022
Our previous meetings were very well attended and had fantastic participation, with immediate positive benefits for some of those attending in forging links and sharing best practice. The discussion topics to be covered in our next meeting on Wednesday 26 October, 1330 – 1500, is supporting employees return to work following cancer treatment.
In this next meeting, we are pleased to hear from The Beatson Cancer Charity who will tell us about the services available to both employees and employers to help employees suffering from cancer to return to work after treatment and remain at work thereafter, and to answer any questions you might have. This will continue to be an important issue for employers as more and more people now live with cancer. It’s also significant because cancer is classed as a disability from the point of diagnosis and so the duty to make reasonable adjustments applies immediately under the Equality Act 2010.
After the presentation, we plan a round table so that anyone in the meeting can talk about any experiences they have had of this issue. We’ll also update you on our Pay Survey and poll you on future topics for the group.
As always, The Managing People Hub remains an open conversation where we share ideas, examples of good practice, requests for help and information to help us all.
