Do I have to tell my employer I have/had cancer?
Can I take time off work?
What if I need more time off from work, but my leave is ending?
What will happen to my health insurance if I leave my job?
These and other questions are top of mind for people right after diagnosis and even years later. But trying to figure out on your own how the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA) work to protect people dealing with cancer is more than confusing.
Cancer Legal Care staff attorneys are here and can help work through the employment questions you have and explain how various the employment protection laws apply to your specific situation.
Note, Cancer Legal Care does not represent people in employment-related litigation actions/lawsuits.
We may be able to connect you with a volunteer employment attorney to provide a pro bono consultation regarding your employment rights.
