NYC Council Passes Employment Bills Requiring Lactation Rooms and Policies
Author: Gary S. YoungDate: November 27, 2018
The New York City Council recently passed several measures intended it to make it easier for mothers to express breast milk during the workday. Most notably, the bills require New York City employers to provide designated lactation rooms and establish a workplace lactation accommodation policy regarding the use of such rooms.
Existing federal and state laws already address these issues. Under Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers must provide reasonable break times for workers to express breast milk for up to one year following a child’s birth. 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, for the employee to express breast milk.
