Many people fear being discriminated against when they tell their employer that they have cancer. Others fear being laid off because they need a break from work for the treatment or care of a family member with cancer. While many employers and colleagues are both employers and colleagues who are both solicit and supportive, discrimination can occur in the workplace. Knowing your rights and duties can help you ensure that you are treated fairly. This section deals with the law applicable to most workers in Australia under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act of 1992 and the Fair Work Act of 2009. The law that applies to you depends on the organization you work for, your employment status and whether there are applicable state or territory laws. Your premium or business agreement may offer additional rights. You should get concrete advice on your situation by a lawyer who specializes in employment issues. If you can`t afford professional advice, you may be able to support the Cancer Council`s recommended legal, financial and employment services. For more information, please contact 13 11 20.
