New Jersey Employment Lawyer: Expanded Protections for Nursing Mothers

December 1st, 2016
Nursing mother

In an effort to expand existing employment laws for nursing mothers, New Jersey lawmakers have proposed a bill that would go further than current legislation to protect nursing mothers from discrimination in the workplace.

Current laws would be extended to include women who work for small businesses and those who continue to breastfeed after a baby’s first year. Under the proposed legislation, breastfeeding would be added to other categories, such as race, religion, disability, and sexual orientation, identified in New Jersey’s 1945 anti-discrimination statute which bars unequal treatment of employees who fit into a protected category. Currently, existing laws protect nursing mothers from employment discrimination at companies employing more than 50 people and until the baby is one year old.
