A guide for the workplace
Menopause and Workplace transitions have seen an increase in the number of court cases sighting unfair support and treatment during menopause.
Evidence points to a much higher rate of women in part-time employment after the age of 50 and an overall employment rate of 9% lower than for men.
Almost One million women have left their jobs because of lack of support, inequality and symptomatic problems.
With this in mind, it is imperative that change begins.
