Search Consultancy has partnered with cancer charity Macmillan and JMW Solicitors LLP to offer employers in Sussex the opportunity to attend a 'managing cancer in the workplace' workshop.

The leading recruitment agency and the solicitors have pledged to donate £1 each to Macmillan for every delegate that attends.

The workshop – which will take place at Best Western The Birch Hotel on Thursday 3 November, between 8.30am and 11am – will cover a selection of topics examining the practical and legislative aspects of managing cancer at work.

Liz Cotton, partner at JMW Solicitors will be on hand to explain the legislation and obligations of employers and a representative from Macmillan will focus on the practical implications.

Debbie Caswell, Search Consultancy's managing director for England, said: "Cancer affects every aspect of life, including work, so it is vital for employers to have a robust plan in place in order to support their staff.

"It is very important for us to provide help and advice to our clients, not just by helping them to find the best candidates for vacancies, but to support them in managing and nurturing their employees.

"We are delighted to support Macmillan and will make a donation for every delegate."

The two-and-a-half-hour sessions  – which will give businesses the opportunity to network – are the latest in a series of informative workshops on employment legislation organised by the recruitment agency.

Liz Cotton added: "JMW is thrilled to be partnering with Search and Macmillan for this informative and interactive session on 'Managing Cancer in the Workplace'.  

"Aimed at HR advisors, the session will cover the various legal and other wider obligations that arise where an employee is living with cancer, and will provide useful guidance for the delegates on how best to manage some of the thornier issues that crop up in this area.'
