    Default Help to find pumping at work laws

    Hi Ladies! I have browsed this board a couple of times, but never posted. I am in need of some direction, and this is the perfect board to get help. I have a friend that works full time, and pumps at work. She was pumping in the bathroom (ew!), because her work doesn't provide anywhere else for her to pump in private. The bathroom is currently torn apart and being remolded, leaving her without even the bathroom to pump in. (BTW, we live in Utah- SLC area.) Where can I find the laws that outline what an employer must provide to a pumping mother? TIA for your guidance.

    I just came across this today.

    http://www.breastfeedinginformation.org/white-paper

    Since the Health Care Reform bill passed it is now (implemented upon signing of the bill, no waiting period like the rest of the billl) law to provide a private space other than a bathroom. The attached contains a link to a pdf on how to get this enacted in your workplace.

    Many states have laws that are actually stronger than the bill and if that's the case, they supersede the federal law. However, according to http://www.ncsl.org/default.aspx?tabid=14389 UT is not included, so the federal law will protect your friend.

    I add the disclaimer I am not a lawyer, nor am I dispensing legal advice, merely providing resources and leaving any interpretation of laws up to the individual.

    Mods: Is there anyway we can make this post a sticky, or make a sticky that has the information from this post so that others can quickly find the resources?

    Great idea! I will either make this a sticky or make a new sticky with useful information like this.
