Indiana Governor Signs Workplace Lactation Bill into Law

February 29, 2008

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has signed into law a bill to support lactation in the workplace and make it a little easier for breastfeeding women who return to work. The law requires that employers with 25 or more employees “to the extent reasonably possible,” provide “a private location, other than a toilet stall, where an employee can express the employee’s breast milk in privacy during any period away from the employee’s assigned duties” and “a refrigerator or other cold storage space for keeping milk that has been expressed; or allow the employee to provide the employee’s own portable cold storage device for keeping milk that has been expressed until the end of the employee’s work day.” Good start, Indiana!
