  • The sharp increase in menopause-related Employment Tribunal claims in the past 4 to 5 years, including an overview of some of the interesting facts in play in some of the cases that have gone to Tribunal, and best practice tips for employers in educating themselves on the menopause and making appropriate adjustments, as necessary.
