Menopause policy

This policy is designed to support staff in a UK business who are experiencing the menopause or perimenopause.

It contains a policy statement and sets out information about both conditions and how they can affect staff.

It will also tell affected staff how they can discuss and raise any issues with you, along with what kind of support and adjustments you may be able to offer. There is also guidance for managers.

Surveys suggest more than half of women experiencing menopause symptoms are negatively affected by them at work and that many have left work as a result, often when at the peak of their careers.

Businesses that fail to find ways of supporting women in this situation therefore risk a sudden loss of knowledge, talent and experience - and becoming subject to increasing numbers of related Employment Tribunal claims.
