Using an administrative data set (Hygie), we apply a difference-in differences with dynamic matching estimation method to the onset of breast cancer. The employment probability decreases by 10 percentage points (pp) one year after the onset of cancer compared to the not-treated group. The detrimental effect of breast cancer on employment increases significantly over time, by up to 12 pp after five years. Another aim of our study is to identify some socio-demographic and work-related protective factors against the adverse effects of breast cancer on labour market outcomes. We stress four potential protective factors related to the negative effect of breast cancer. First, a young age at occurrence reduces this deleterious effect. Second, a high first job wage also appears to be a protective factor. Third, having faced less unemployment in the past is associated with a weaker negative effect of breast cancer on employment in the short run. Finally, we find a moderate “generational effect” after stratification by year of cancer onset.
