Menstrual flexibility leave

Menstrual flexibility leave aims to make it easier for workers to adapt work rhythm to the menstrual cycle in those cases that may affect the individual’s well-being and work performance.

This leave, an initiative and proposal of union groups, was approved by Girona City Council in plenary assembly. By making a request to the HR department, Girona City Council workers who need it can apply for up to eight hours of flexible menstrual leave, which allows them to be absent or modify the working day schedule.

Flexible hours may cover a period of up to three months. This leave is always granted, and no proof is required.
