Creating a Lactation Accommodation policy

As the emphasis on inclusive workplaces grows, it’s no surprise that lactation accommodation laws are a part of this equation. Lactation accommodations have been federally required since 2010 when the Affordable Care Act amended the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to provide protection for employees who need to express breast milk.

In recent years, more states and locations have developed their own specific laws, so it’s important you provide nursing employees everything they need to know about lactation accommodations in the workplace.
