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
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.
