Paid Period Leave Is Becoming A Thing

Let’s be honest, when you are on your period at work it can be a long day, for both you and your co-workers. You are a walking, talking bomb that could explode with emotions – whether that is tears or unprovoked anger, it is impossible to predict.

But imagine if you could get a paid day off when you had your period, where you could sit at home in the fetal position with a hot water bottle crying over soldiers coming home from war videos.

Well, one U.K based company is officially allowing its female employees to take a paid day off, which will not take away from their sick time.

The company’s “period policy” means that women can take an extra day off when their period hits the so-intense-can’t-stand stage.

In fairness, this is beneficial for everyone! Fingers crossed this makes its way to companies world-wide!
