18th October is World Menopause Day. Acas has published new guidance to help employers and managers support staff who are affected by menopause symptoms at work.
Around two million women have difficulties at work due to their menopause symptoms and it's estimated that one in 20 could go through an early menopause.
Our new advice includes tips for workers on how to raise the issue and good practice guidance for employers to help offer support and better manage menopause at work.
Acas Senior Adviser, Michele Piertney, talks about 'Breaking the silence on the menopause' in her new blog.
