My boss (a male boss to anyone wondering) has incorporated a new policy which states that if a woman feels too uncomfortable or in pain to work whilst she's on her period, she is free to take the day off as long as she makes up for the time later on. It seems good to me but my one worry is that women could exploit the system if they feel like having a day off (especially as us men aren't entirely clued up). What do you think, good policy or nah?

she has to make the time up anyway so it wouldn't make a difference. but its a good policy, because sometimes some jobs act like girls dont get period or we aren't hormonal. Like sometimes my flow is so ridiculous i need to go the bathroom every hour and pop pills all the time , and my feet literally feel like they are going to fall off, i feel like my stomach is on fire, or im so hormonal feel like murdering everyone... its a good policy. Is this the same for pregnant women? There is close to no protection for pregnant women in the workforce they literally have to suck it up, its horrible.2
