Health-related policies for colorectal cancer screening  

Workplace policies promote a corporate “culture of good health.”

Providing sick leave or flextime for employee who need screening or clinical follow-up will reduce structural barriers

  • Flexible times for beginning and ending work each day, or “flextime” policies can be useful in creating opportunities for employees to schedule/arrange for a screening during the day yet maintain their expected number of work hours. Flextime policies allow employees to shift their work schedules, such as coming in earlier or later or taking a lunch break at alternate times
