How New Breastfeeding Laws Apply To Your Organization:
Employers are required to provide “reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk.” Employers are also required to provide “a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.” As per the US Department of Labor (http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs73.htm)
Many Physicians and other medical and lactation professionals require breastpumps, trolleys, scales, and waterless bottle warmers. Please contact us to see how we can benefit your office.
