Though cancer is known to be complicated to navigate, more are realizing that employers can ease some of the burden that workers experience. They can do so by clearly communicating available resources and benefits and working to help employees understand their options.
Human Resources can play an important role in the connection of employees and families to the behavioral health services as well as assistance in dealing with the large financial burdens of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. This, of course, is in addition to the information that should be provided by HR on short leave programs, short- and long-term disability. It is important that anything that helps to ease the stress of navigating a diagnosis as complex as cancer, is beneficial for both employees and employers.
