Feeding babies matters!New York: NYC Mandates Workplace Lactation Rooms beginning 3/18/19 "Beginning March 18, 2019, employers in the Big Apple with at least four workers must provide lactation rooms and create a written lactation-accommodation policy that must be given to workers when they are hired. The city's human rights commission will release a model policy before the effective date.
Covered employers will have to provide a clean space (not a bathroom) for employees to express breast milk. The space must be shielded from view and free from intrusion and have an electrical outlet, a chair and a surface for personal items. The space must be close to running water and the employee's work area, and there also must be a refrigerator near the employee's work area."
