Abstract

The labour market outcomes experienced by women with chronic illness are subject to a number of influences. These influences have been recently expanded to include the normative expectations of wellbeing as a prerequisite for productivity in their various social and working roles. Discussion of these factors is often situated within the bounds of the workplace. One area, external to the workplace, which needs greater attention is the role of family and friends as part of the support network for these women. The personal environment has the potential to allow women with chronic illness to excel in their work and careers, however, it may also result in less positive outcomes. This paper examines the workforce experiences of women with chronic illness and role that personal and professional influences play in their workplace outcomes.
