The employer should have a written policy that describes the worksite accommodations available to breastfeeding employees. Such policy is a part of the employer’s written policies. All employees should be informed of the policy.
Flexible break time is provided as needed for a woman to (a) nurse her child or (b) express her milk. If necessary, the beginning and/or ending time of work can be adjusted to accommodate these breaks. For example, if two 15-minute breaks are allowed for all employees, the breastfeeding employee starts work 15 minutes earlier and leaves work 15 minutes later to allow for two 30-minute breaks.
A private area with an electric outlet (not a toilet stall or public restroom) is available for nursing or expressing milk. It is quiet, clean, and has enough room for a comfortable chair and a place to set a breast pump.
Place to wash hands
A clean water source for washing hands and rinsing out any breast pump equipment is available close to the private area.
Place to store breast milk
A place for storing breastmilk is available. Breastmilk can be stored in a refrigerator or the mother can bring a small ice chest from home.
