Breastfeeding in the Workplace

Nursing and lactating mothers are protected by federal and Pennsylvania state law that allows them to have time and access in the workplace to breastfeed or express their milk for one to three years following the birth of their child.  Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates support a woman’s rights to continue to breastfeed their child after returning to work following their maternity leave.  Employers who refuse to comply with these laws are subject to fines and other legal consequences.

Employers that provide paid break time to employees must also provide an employee paid break time to breastfeed or pump their milk.  Pennsylvania laws clearly states that the mother has the right to choose where and when she can tend to her needs, whether it be a public or private area, and whether or not to cover her breast or nipple while doing so.

For more information on breastfeeding in the workplace, contact the Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates at 215-569-1999, or complete our online contact form.
