The Break Time for Nursing Mothers law, passed in 2010, provided critical protections to ensure that employees have reasonable break time and a private place to pump during the work day. However, nearly one in four women of childbearing age are excluded from coverage and have no clear right to break time and space.
It's time to close this gap:
- Ensure that ALL lactating employees are covered by the Break Time law
- Ensure that nursing mothers have access to remedies that are available for other violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
