OK, so a journalist at HR Magazine is putting together a news story based on new research that found 96% of UK women say their employers do not offer any sort of menstrual leave within the workplace, even for the most severe of PMS symptoms.
For more context: when asked if they would support or oppose a legal policy that would require employers to give women who are experiencing severe menstrual symptoms time off work, 84% of UK women stated they were in favour, with just 6% strongly against the idea.
The journalist is seeking views from HR and workplace wellbeing experts on what kind of impact a change to employment law like this could have on the UK workforce? Would you welcome it or oppose it? If so, why?
