Arkansas Nursing in the Workplace Rules
Arkansas employers must comply with these state rules regarding nursing in the workplace.
Employers in Arkansas are required to provide a reasonable unpaid break time for an employee who needs to express breast milk for her child.
The employer must make reasonable effort to provide a room or other location close to the work area that is private, secure, and sanitary, other than a toilet stall, where an employee can express her breast milk.
Break time for expressing breast milk is to run concurrently with any paid or unpaid break time already provided to the employee.
The employer is not required to provide break time for purposes of expressing breast milk if to do so would create an undue hardship on the employer's operations. The employee must make a reasonable effort to minimize disruption of the employer's operations.
