The parliamentary inquiry will examine if legislation is doing enough to address discrimination for working women.
A previous study by Forth With Life found that of 1,000 women, 63% said that their menopausal symptoms had negatively impacted their working life.
With data indicating that female employees need more support in the workplace, MPs are now set to examine this lack of support.
The Commons cross-party women and equalities committee is launching the inquiry dubbed An invisible cohort: Why are workplaces failing women undergoing menopause?
Talking openly about women’s health and any health will help many get the support they need sooner. Whenever you’re struggling with symptoms yourself or as a Line Manager, your awareness is limited on Menopause; we aim to increase awareness of this topic
As part of Simply’s Employee Wellbeing program, a Menopause support group was created, the members asked for additional support, and we could provide this. We are pleased to announce that all female employees can enrol on our new BUPA Menopause Support program. You are invited to enrol if you are currently facing or anticipate in the near future and would like to understand more about the support options available to you.
