Moms' Rights to Pump at Work

As a breastfeeding mother returning to work, it's essential to know your rights when it comes to pumping breast milk in the workplace. The law protects your right to continue breastfeeding and expressing milk for your baby even after you've returned to work. Here's what you need to know:

1. Federal Law Protection: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) amended the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to require employers to provide reasonable break time and a private space (other than a bathroom) for employees to express breast milk during the workday. This protection applies to non-exempt employees in the United States.

2. Time for Pumping: Under the ACA, employers must provide reasonable break time for nursing mothers to express breast milk for one year after the child's birth. These breaks should be provided whenever the employee needs to express milk, typically every 2-3 hours.

3. Private Space: Employers are required to provide a private space, other than a bathroom, for pumping breast milk. This space should be shielded from view and free from intrusion by coworkers or the public. It should also have access to electricity for powering a breast pump.

4. PUMP Act: In 2021, the government passed the PUMP (Providing Urgent Maternal Protections) for Nursing Mothers Act, which amended the FLSA to extend lactation accommodations to salaried employees and to cover small businesses with less than 50 employees. This act further strengthens protections for breastfeeding employees in the workplace.

5. State Laws: In addition to federal law, many states have enacted their own legislation providing further protections for breastfeeding employees. Some states extend the period of protection beyond one year or require additional accommodations. Connecticut State Breastfeeding Laws : here

6. Know Your Rights: Familiarize yourself with both federal and state laws regarding lactation accommodation in the workplace. If you encounter any difficulties or your rights are not being respected, don't hesitate to reach out to a lactation consultant or an attorney specializing in employment law.

We are committed to supporting breastfeeding mothers in the workplace. We provide resources and guidance to both employers and employees to ensure compliance with lactation laws and create a supportive environment for breastfeeding mothers.

Remember, advocating for your rights as a breastfeeding mother benefits not only you but also future generations of working mothers. Your choice to continue breastfeeding while balancing work responsibilities is valid, important, and protected by law.
