Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to provide:

 

A. a 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 the need to express milk; and

B. 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.

 

Is your company compliant?

 
 
I was instructed to use a supply room, where I sat on top of a garbage can to pump milk. Even though the door had a lock, colleagues with spare keys often walked in on me while searching for supplies.

I’ll never forget having to pump in a dirty storage area behind a divided wall where my co-workers were sitting (and listening!) to me on the other side. I should’ve stood up for myself, but I wasn’t as educated as I should’ve been on my rights as a working mom.

Work & Mother suites are fully-equipped, boutique lactation facilities in high-density office towers. Work & Mother Suites relieve individual companies from the burden of providing a customized space within their own office environment, while enabling working mothers to pump in a private, safe space without disrupting their workday or worrying about coworker intrusions.
