Employers who make provision for women employees to take paid menstrual leave could help de-stigmatise periods.
702's Azania Mosaka on Tuesday spoke to MD of Global Business Solutions, Thembi Chagonda, regarding the issue.
Listen to the interview below:
...Some countries have abandoned it because you now have a leave that leaves some kind of reverse discrimination.— Thembi Chagonda, Global Business Solutions MD
Companies need to be responsive to the plight of women, so the policies need to have reasonable interpretation in terms of understanding that.— Thembi Chagonda, Global Business Solutions MD
Putting menstruation aside, I think there's an issue of misuse of sick leave which is generally a trend you find in many organisations.— Thembi Chagonda, Global Business Solutions MD
