Your workplace may also be affected when an employee’s loved one gets cancer. Being a caregiver for a person with cancer can affect an employee’s availability, productivity and health care costs. Caregiving can also affect an employee's physical, psychological and financial well-being.

Today’s working caregivers are looking to their employers for support, guidance and assistance which presents an enormous opportunity for employers. Employers can increase employee satisfaction, increase productivity and reduce additional health care costs by providing workplace accommodations — such as flex-time—or family medical leave (FMLA) so that caregivers can continue to stay in the workforce while caring for a relative. Additionally, employers can provide caregiving employees with the Workplace Transitions: Employee Brochure that encourages workers to use free, credible resources and services that can help relieve caregiving concerns.
