Menopause and the Workplace | Director’s Briefing

The symptoms of menopause can significantly impact women at work, and it is an important issue for both employers and employees.

Menopausal symptoms will be different for everyone, affecting people both physically and mentally. Sometimes, working conditions can impact the ability of a person with menopausal symptoms to concentrate or carry out their role sufficiently.

This Director’s Briefing takes you through:

•  What is the menopause?

•  Who is affected?

•  Why have a policy?

•  The law

•  What else can an employer do to reduce discomfort and harm, and increase acceptance associated with the menopause?

•  Right to request flexible working
