How much should a person tell about his/her cancer at the workplace?Save as Favorite
My wife has cancer and is in the middle of treatment, but things could get worse. In my opinion, she had talked too much at her workplace already about her condition, with many details. She is a manager and has people that take her orders. The place naturally needs to make money and I am afraid that she soon will be seen as a liability. Her bosses would not say too much now for legal reasons, but I am afraid they will soon try to let her go. She is 62 years old and she was very healthy, but now... I think she feels she can confide in her coworkers, but I am not so sure. One coworker of her same level already told her he does not care if she has cancer, that the cancer is her business. Even some more friendly coworkers estimate that she had said too much. I told her to be careful with what she says, but I know she does not want to change her ways. What do you guys think?
