Aklan town allows female LGU employees to work from home for 2 days a month during monthly period

Starting this February, female employees of the local government of Tangalan, Aklan will be allowed to work from home two days a month during their monthly period.

This was after the ordinance approved by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan last December took effect this February, according to a report on Unang Balita on Monday.

Some women experience pain whenever they have menstruation.

With the ordinance, they need not file for a leave of absence during those days.

The municipality of Tangalan became the first town in Aklan to implement such an ordinance. 

Meanwhile, Spain passed a bill that will entitle workers to paid menstrual leave, becoming the first country in Europe to do so. —KG, GMA Integrated News
