2.9 Lactation Regulations

The District supports employees who breast-feed their children by accommodating their needs to express breast milk during the workday for up to one year after a child’s birth. Prior to returning to work from maternity leave, the employee will notify the building administrator/supervisor of her intent to continue breast-feeding and of her need to express breast milk during the day. It will be the responsibility of the employee to keep the building administrator/supervisor informed of her needs in this regard throughout the period of lactation.

In each building a space will be provided that is a lockable and sanitary place for breast-feeding employees to express their milk during the day. An employee who is breast-feeding her child will be provided reasonable break times to express milk. Hourly employees shall be able to combine their break periods for this purpose. Supervisors will work with the employee to schedule times to express milk during the work day. Employees are expected to respect the privacy of breast- feeding employees.
