Here is the problem: He is getting laid-off from his job. He has had this position for six years and they have been great to him. He is going to be job hunting soon. Should he tell his potential employees about the cancer? I personally think he should tell them on the second or third interview so they know coming in. Legally, he doesn't have to but morally does he owe it to them?
I have gotten 3 jobs since he has been diagnosed. I have told every single one of them during the second interview and have never lost a job. I felt I owed it to the employers to know that I might have to take off days to take care of him and that this was a fact of my life. Plus, if days off were going to be a sticking point then I did not want to work there. It has never been a problem.
What does everyone else think? DH is scared to job hunt and I am too close to the situation. If you were an employer, would you want to know? Would you hire him?
