BREASTFEEDING AND THE LAW
Are you compliant with breastfeeding laws?
Section 4207 of the law amends the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires an employer to provide reasonable break time to express breast milk, and must also provide a place, other than a bathroom, for the employee to express breast milk.
26 States (plus D.C. and Puerto Rico) have laws protecting breastfeeding in the workplace:
AR, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, GA, HI, IL, IN, LA, MA, ME, MN, MS, MT, ND, NJ, NM, NY, OK, OR, RI, TN, TX, UT, VT
Do you have enough lactation spaces?
In addition to compliance with the law, you need to consider the number of lactation spaces recommended per your count of female employees. The Office on Women’s Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created the following chart based on recommendations from the National Institutes of Health:
