Menopause and the Workplace Employee Factsheet

Despite 11% of the working population (3.5 million) going through the menopause in the UK, the subject, including the adverse symptoms suffered by many women, are not commonly acknowledged in the workplace. This lack of support makes it even tougher for women to cope if they are badly affected by menopausal symptoms and commonly causes people to isolate themselves from their teams or even leave their job.

This Employee Factsheet takes you through what the menopause is, who is affected, your employer’s role, what to do if you need support, sources of help and information, and other actions you should take.
