Relating to the places a public employer may provide for employees
to express breast milk.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Under current law, public employers are required to provide a reasonable amount of break time for an employee to express breast milk as needed and provide a private place for the employee to express breast milk, other than a multiple user bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from other employees and the public. A single user bathroom is permissible under current law.
HB 1041 would prohibit public employers from designating any bathroom as an acceptable place for an employee to express breast milk.
