Breastfeeding Workers' Rights and Resources. Thursday, May 21st 2020 at 3 pm ET. Register here

One of the most challenging experiences on a parent’s breastfeeding journey is managing return to work, as many struggle to access even simple workplace accommodations. The COVID-19 crisis has only exacerbated the difficulty employees face to gain breastfeeding accommodations at their work site. This session will provide an opportunity to better understand legal protections for lactating workers, as well as the degree to which the COVID-19 crisis has--or has not--changed the legal landscape. In this session, attorney Jessica Lee will provide an overview of the legal protections lactating workers have while they’re in training, searching for work, and/or on the job. We will explore common misconceptions about the laws requiring workplace accommodations. Finally, we will discuss strategies for preventing and responding to commonly-faced workplace challenges, and where to turn for more support in this difficult time. CEUs will be provided.
