Abstract

Menstruation is a normal biological process similar to any other natural occurrence. The Menstrual Paid leave policy indirectly contributes to the empowerment of women, which is needed. This paper aims to show the gap in the available literature by analyzing the situation and determining how menstruation leaves may be effectively incorporated into the Indian legal system while forming an enabling provision that does not oppress other women who do not require it. Unlike South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, and Taiwan, India has no established law that allows female employees to take paid leave because of menstruation or menstrual discomfort. The current study employs the doctrinal method with an analytical approach to interpret the existing legal framework and examines the legal positions of India on menstruation leave. The present study is restricted to women employed in the organized sector in India
