Nursing Mothers

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires employers to provide reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for their nursing child for one year after the child’s birth each time such employee has a need to express the milk. Employers are also required to provide 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.

New mothers may use the lactation room in the DUC or their office. A department may need to make modifications to create a space that is adequate. Contact HRAA for guidance on modifications or accommodations.
