Workplace Laws: Protection for Breastfeeding Employees

Supporting breastfeeding employees is pivotal to a company’s family-friendly policies, with proven financial benefits to businesses. It’s also the law. This program will explain recent legal rulings that have extended the Pregnancy Discrimination Action to include breastfeeding employees.  We will also address the federal Break Time for Nursing Mothers Act. The federal “Nursing Mothers’ Break Time” law has specific requirement for employers for supporting their breastfeeding employees.  

This presentation includes simple explanation of the needs of breastfeeding employees and practical strategies for implementing support in any business setting.  You will also learn about resources available to help employers in Kansas, such as online database of solutions, free consultations, policy templates, recognition awards and more.

The Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition has years of experience assisting Kansas companies to formalize support for their breastfeeding employees, reducing risk of EEOC & DOL complaints and increasing the company’s bottom line.
