If you’re not in a trade union, you can still ask your manager yourself!

Here are some tips on speaking to employers, using our periods and menopause workplace resources:

  • Ask for a meeting about the policies, and send them the flyer and the template beforehand so they have some information to begin with
  • Show them the Fórsa survey results to explain why it’s so important
  • Let them know that with some reasonable adjustments, people will be less likely to need to use sick leave, will be more productive, and will know their workplace is an inclusive one that values their employee
