Breastfeeding Violations

Breastfeeding Violations

Breastfeeding is a natural and healthy way to nourish infants, but unfortunately, nursing mothers continue to face discrimination and harassment in the workplace. At Shegerian Conniff, we understand that nursing mothers have legal rights to breastfeed in the workplace and to receive reasonable accommodations to express milk during working hours. Our breastfeeding violation services are designed to protect the rights of nursing mothers and hold employers accountable for violating those rights.

Understanding Breastfeeding Laws in California

In California, the act of breastfeeding is protected by law. California Civil Code Section 43.3 states that “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a mother may breastfeed her child in any location, public or private, except the private home or residence of another, where the mother and the child are otherwise authorized to be present.” This means that nursing mothers have the right to breastfeed their babies in public places, including the workplace. Furthermore, California Labor Code Section 1030 requires employers to provide reasonable break time and private space, other than a toilet stall, for employees to express milk.

Many employers still discriminate against breastfeeding mothers in spite of these regulations. Some businesses might refuse their employees breaks or fail to give them a quiet place to express milk, while others might make their workplaces unpleasant or uncomfortable for nursing moms. These behaviors are illegal and may result in serious repercussions for employers.
