Northern Ireland’s employers are under increasing pressure to ensure they facilitate women who are going through the menopause. The Equality Commissioner has warned firms could end up on the “wrong side of the law” if they do not take action on the issue, which is only gathering momentum with an increasing number of women speaking up about the condition.

UK-wide there are more than a million women with menopausal symptoms who feel under pressure to quit their jobs because they are not receiving the support they need, according to a recent survey.
