In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide, Mark addresses the taboo issue of the effects of menopause and working. Over half of all employees are women and half of them are at an age where they are experiencing perimenopause and menopause. Mark raises the issue that employers need to do more to accommodate women going through this transition. That the underlying medical and psychological issues that comprise menopause are in fact disabilities that are protected under federal, state and city laws. Mark encourages employees to ask for reasonable accommodations to address symptoms at work and taking leaves of absences if needed. He provides helpful information to help you protect yourself while going through menopause and how managers can become more aware of this taboo but important subject.
