Reproductive leave and flexible work policies are workplace regulations that enable employees to take time off or adjust their working hours for various reasons related to the symptoms associated with menstruation, menopause, fertility treatments (IVF) and breast or prostrate screenings. These policies consider the physical, emotional and logistical challenges these life events may entail. This article discusses the importance of reproductive leave and flexible work policies in Australia in addressing the unique challenges faced by employees dealing with menstruation, menopause, fertility treatments and screenings for reproductive health.
