Breastfeeding & Lactation Accommodations

Course Content
The number of working mothers with infants in the U.S. is rapidly increasing. But, returning to work after childbirth leads many new mothers to give up breastfeeding. Studies show that supportive lactation programs benefit companies with lower health care costs, reduced absenteeism, increased retention, and higher productivity. And now, accommodating breastfeeding is the law.

Course Purpose

This course explores lactation accommodation rules and identifies your obligations as an employer in plain English. It also includes a compliance checklist, best practices, and resources for developing an effective lactation program.
