Menopause Policy Extract

This policy is designed to help understanding of menopausal symptoms for both employees and those managing employees. It is designed to encourage employees to discuss their own symptoms in a timely manner, particularly if there is concern that performance may be being affected.

Whilst menopause is not determined as being a disability under the Equality Act 2010, the severity of symptoms could mean that they amount to a disability.  Employers must ensure that they do not treat employees less favourably than others as a result of a disability and must also make reasonable adjustments to ensure that employees are not disadvantaged as a result of their disability.

This is one of the developing areas with HR and employment law so many organisations are introducing written policies.

As with all policies, this written policy should comply with your data protection policies and GDPR practice and policy.
