Reproductive Health – Guide for Employers

The read

Spain recently became the first European country to mandate menstrual leave, granting those who struggle with their menstrual health the right to take paid time off work during their period.

How does current legislation in the UK affect employee’s rights to take paid leave for reproductive health issues?

We asked Head of Employment Jean-Pierre van Zyl what employers and HR professionals should be aware of and what they can do to facilitate the needs of their employees and mitigate legal risk.

To accompany this video, we have prepared a brief guide for employers on steps they can take to support their staff and facilitate conversations around menstruation, the menopause and wider reproductive health. You can access this guide here.

Please contact a member of our Employment team for further information on what you can do as an employer or should you require support with introducing a policy or to deliver training.
