However, learning and understanding your rights in the workplace may feel confusing and unclear. In YSC’s upcoming webinar, S. Beth Stephens, Staff Attorney for the Breast Cancer Legal Project at the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc., will explore these issues and many more. Ms. Stephens previously guest blogged for YSC on the topic of Navigating Breast Cancer and Employment.
