Accommodating Nursing Mothers

Humboldt County employers should be aware that California law provides that every employer, including state and any political subdivisions, provide a reasonable amount of break time to accommodate an employee desiring to express breast milk for the employee's infant child, assuming that such breaks do not seriously disrupt the operations of the employer.  If possible, the breaks should run concurrently with any break periods already provided to the employee. Breaks that do not run concurrently with the employee’s authorized rest time need not be paid.
