We suggest you join the meeting a few minutes early so that you have time to download the WebEx software.

An ovarian cancer diagnosis finds you as you are: someone with friends and family, hobbies, a social life, and very likely, a job that you would like to keep.

Please join us for a presentation and conversation about the intersection between your diagnosis and employment law and how to navigate this sometimes precarious space.

Among other things, we will discuss:

  • Should I disclose my diagnosis at work?
  • Can I take time off for treatment and expect to have my job waiting for me?
  • If I need to take unpaid leave, are there other available sources of income to help bridge the gap financially?
  • Can I keep working during chemo?
  • What if I have a recurrence and need additional treatment in the future?
  • Are my friends and family protected if they need to take time off to care for me?
