Employers must make changes that make it easy for mothers to continue to provide breast milk for their babies after the mother returns to the workplace (Affordable Care Act, P.L. 111-148, Sec. 4207). Specifically, an employer is required to provide a reasonable break time for a nursing mother to express breast milk for a child until the child is one year old, and provide a place, other than a bathroom, that the employee may use for expressing milk. The place provided must be free from intrusion by coworkers and the public and be shielded from others' view.
The employer is not required to compensate an employee for any work time spent on the break. Employers with fewer than 50 workers do not have to comply with the new requirements if doing so would cause an undue hardship by causing the employer significant difficulty or expense when considered in relation to the size, financial resources, nature, or structure of the employer's business


ETA: The part in bold, that's the important aspect. Many businesses will not be able to accommodate without building extra space.

Ya pretty much. Everyone who voted to pass it needs recalled, censure and tried for high crimes against the American public.

My last employeer allowed a sow to use the break room to pump her utters for her kid, only problem was she used it as an excuse to take many long extended breaks and when she did actually pump she got her sow juices all over hell and back. So fucking foul.

More neat stuff. Small Employer Insurance Credit


The Affordable Care Act added IRC Sec. 45R that provides a small employer health insurance credit to encourage small employers to pay a portion of their employees' health insurance costs. Small employers (for-profit or tax-exempt) that meet the eligibility requirements are given a credit to help offset the employer's cost of providing insurance coverage for its employees.

The credit has two phases. In the first phase, applicable for tax years beginning in 2010-2013, eligible small employers (ESEs) that purchase health insurance for their employees through a qualifying arrangement are eligible for the credit. In the second phase, beginning in 2014, ESEs who purchase coverage through a state insurance marketplace's Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) are eligible for the credit for up to two years. Therefore, certain small employers may be eligible for the tax credit for a total of six years [i.e., four years for phase one (2010-2013) and an additional two years beginning in 2014].


I'm sure this will get small employers to buy insurance. 6 years of credit? And they wonder why small businesses are not taking this credit. DUH

What specifically is your issue with allowing a new mother unpaid breaks and a clean place to pump breast milk for future feedings while she is at work and her child is elsewhere?

Would you prefer she didn't work so you could bitch about the FSA?

Do you actually have any thoughts on this or was this the only way you could think to get Obama into a thread title without actually putting forth any real effort at critical thinking?

My place has had "mother rooms" for years. Basically rooms that have locks. Have no idea what they look like inside . Even have little lights over the doors that come on so you know when someone is in there.
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 9:14:22 AM EST
My place of work already does this. This one chick had a baby and they let her pump in a spare office. It's not that big a deal really and I would think most businesses wouldn't have an issue with it. Apparently some do if Bongocare is mandating it.

most employers already do this.. not getting upset over it. moms need to pump.. Of all the shit to freak out about. they even say the employer is not required to pay for her break times just provide the break time.

Link Posted: 7/25/2013 9:17:30 AM EST
Jeez........why not just say that mother's can bring thier chillen' to work and take a break in an employer provided pvt breakroom whenever they wanna feed the baby?

Not that I think that it's a good idea, mind you.

Yeah, I agree. If I read the OP correctly, then the employee is expressing milk off the payroll. The mother of my daughter breastfeed for a long time, saved us a bunch of money by not having to buy so much formula.

You do realize most mothers that do pump at work are trying to do the best for their babies and still make a living.

FSA don't have to pump, they get baby formula for free.

Never saw wasted space in any office I worked in or managed. In NYC rents can be $50+ per sq foot. So an employer has to find or make space fo this, insane.
Get in the supply closet and pump it out or put a curtain at the entrance to the cubicle

Wife interviewed for a job the day after discharge with our first (one day in the hospital)........she had to pump for a while after. This was at a small engineering and fabrication firm. She got the job and when I'd call occasionally, when one of the guys answered the phone they'd get all flustered when I asked if I could talk to her.....she was off pumping.....I should have asked the guy 'is she off emptying the udders again?' to see the reaction.


They're talking about someone going in with a pump:



Not someone bringing their kid in to suck tit....

As long as it's discrete, doesn't substantially interfere with work, etc....it shouldn't be an issue....I'm not wild at all on the government getting involved, but the employer should be OK with it in general....

My only objection to it, is that it IS NOT within the Constitutional authority of Congress to mandate that of private employers.

Are you suggesting that it falls under the "regulate inter-state commerce" clause?

when i worked at chic-fil-a in high school, we had a new mother who needed to pump her tits....she used the small managers office....
i'm pretty sure all fast food joints have those, and shouldn't be a problem to allow them in there for fifteen minutes to do their thing....
cash is all locked up, the worse she could have done was mess with the schedule on the dry erase board and watch the cameras.....

ETA: i don't think this should be mandated by .gov....
i'm in MEP engineering, and have seen quite a few new office buildings being built, outfitted with "mother's rooms" specifically for this...

Restaurant offices should be under video surveillance. Don't think that would fly. And any special "closet" without cameras would be so open for abuse.

Nothing wrong with mothers pumping at work as long as they are pumping and not taking advantage. We have one who is pumping at my office, it does not interfere with her work. In fact, this co-worker had a hands free unit so she can take work with her as she pumps.

Not advocating a mandate. FBHO. But, women should have this extended to them automatically with no issue.

Is it the service provider's responsibility or the company man's responsibility?

We have wireline crews that go out with nothing more than a few trucks and work 12 hour turns. Guess they need to start packing lockable tents...

Nothing wrong with mothers pumping at work as long as they are pumping and not taking advantage. We have one who is pumping at my office, it does not interfere with her work. In fact, this co-worker had a hands free unit so she can take work with her as she pumps.

Not advocating a mandate. FBHO. But, women should have this extended to them automatically with no issue.

I work with some nurses who pump at work. They just go in the bathroom and manage just fine.

I think it's funny that they tell everyone, including me, that they're going to go play with their boobs for 20 minutes.
