CLL and the law

People with cancer, or any other serious disease, have legal protection as they are covered by a law called the Equality Act.

Under the Equality Act CLL (and other cancers) is considered a disability.looking at small print through a magnifying glass

This means that employers and places of study have a legal requirement to make reasonable arrangements for ‘people with disabilities’ and can’t discriminate against you.

An example of a reasonable arrangement would be if you need time off to go to hospital for treatment.

Your employer or college has to allow this and isn’t allowed to reduce your pay or make you take the time as unpaid leave.
