Break time! For nursing mothers

When I was a kid, I dreamed of having a television in the bathroom because it combined two favorite past-times: watching TV and taking bubble baths. To me, that was REAL luxury. But you can dress up your company bathroom with chandeliers and pieces of great art and it still won’t make it a suitable place to express breast milk. The Department of Labor has issued its fact sheet on breaks for nursing mothers, and one of the things it gets specific on is private bathrooms.

Our partners at Squire Sanders & Dempsey have covered this topic, explaining what you need to know about the changes. To read “DOL issues Guidelines on Break Time Requirements for Nursing Mothers,” click here.

The DOL’s new fact sheet (“Break Time for Nursing Mothers Under the FLSA”) covers:

  • General Requirements
  • Time and Location of Breaks
  • Coverage and Compensation
  • Where to Obtain Additional Information
