There is some debate about whether the increasing discussion about the menopause at work is a good thing or whether it will set back women's rights to equality in the workplace. Will it help encourage employers to treat menopausal women more sensitively or will it become another reason to discriminate?

ACAS thinks both employers and employees need help with the issue and have today (world menopause day - who knew?) published the guidance below. It contains practical advice and tips and is worth a read. Perhaps with a cup of tea and a cake as apparently it is also world chocolate cake day!
