New York City: New Lactation Room Policies are in Effect

As of March 18, 2019, New York City has issued new standards for lactation rooms in the workplace and the process for making lactation-related accommodation requests.
By: Imbesi Law
NEW YORK - April 1, 2019 - PRLog -- To comply with the law, an employer with at least four (4) employees must provide a lactation room in reasonable proximity to an employee's work area. The room must contain a chair and a flat surface for the breast pump and other personal items.

The law also requires employers to provide a refrigerator suitable for breast milk storage in reasonable proximity to the employees' work area, an electrical outlet in the lactation room and nearby access to running water.

Additionally, employers must have a written policy that informs employees about the lactation room and the process for requesting lactation-related accommodations.

If your employer has denied your request for a place to pump, has made it difficult to pump or has retaliated against you for your request, please call Brittany Weiner (646-767-2271) for a free consultation. Most cases are taken on a contingency basis.

Ms. Weiner has successfully represented employees in a variety of employment disputes, including discrimination and retaliation.
