New changes in federal health care law mean that companies with 50+ employees must support breastfeeding mothers by providing a lactation room at work and scheduling break time for nursing mothers (there are some exceptions if it will cause undue hardship for the business).
What does it mean for your company, agency, or organization?
- It means you must comply with the latest federal and state legislation developments, rules, and regulations that apply to letting new moms pump breast milk at work.
- In the long run it means higher productivity from new moms, healthier babies, and less leave taken to care for a sick child.
- Right now, it means your company needs a workplace lactation policy, a compliance plan, and some expert advice that will save you time and money.
