The Women and Equalities Committee has launched a survey into women’s experience of menopause in the workplace.
The House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee has launched a survey to find out about women’s experience of the menopause in the workplace.
The Committee says that three in five women are negatively affected at work as a result of the menopause. In July, it launched an inquiry, Menopause and the Workplace, examining the possible discrimination faced by those experiencing the menopause to which workingwise.co.uk has contributed.
It is now asking those with lived experiences to contribute to the inquiry by completing a short survey which investigates how menopause has impacted on their careers. As part of their inquiry, the MPs will also be assessing the consequences of the menopause on the wider economy, the pay gap and the pension gap and will ask if existing legislation and workplace practices are fit for purpose.
It says that, while all submissions will remain anonymous, responses or quotes may be used in the course of the inquiry, so contributors are asked not to share any identifying information in the open questions.
