SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Employment; break and location to express breast milk. Requires employers, including the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions, to provide reasonable unpaid break time each day to an employee who needs to express breast milk for her nursing child for one year after the child's birth. The bill requires an employer to make reasonable efforts to provide a room or other location, other than a bathroom, where the employee can express breast milk in privacy. An employer shall not be held to have violated these requirements if it has made reasonable efforts to comply with them. The measure applies to employees who are exempt under 7 of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA requires employers to provide such benefits for nonexempt employees.
