Nursing in the Workplace Laws by State

Filed under Managing the Workplace. Fact checked on May 25, 2012.

Article Tools

Federal law requires certain employers to provide unpaid nursing breaks to nonexempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act. State laws may also address breaks for nursing mothers either through specific rules for the workplace or through more general rules that encompass the workplace.

Employers must be aware of both the federal and state laws regarding breaks for nursing mothers in the workplace. If state law provides greater protection for nursing mothers in the workplace than federal law, an employer is obligated to provide any greater protections prescribed by state law.
