At one UK company, PMS will qualify you for a flexible schedule or sick leave.
Whether or not athletic men who have jock itch will be treated in a similar fashion is not clear at this time.
Coexist is made up mostly of women, and one of its leaders, Bex Baxter, says she sees a lot of women suffering around that time. “I have found them doubled over in a lot of pain,” she said.
Baxter says the new policy is not about getting more days off, but being able to work efficiently around their cycle. She also wants the “period leave” policy to “break the last great taboo.”
As long as her company can make money with that policy, more power to her.
