Two new laws are taking effect this year that protect pregnant employees at work, the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act (otherwise known as the Pump Act) and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act.
The Pump Act went into effect on December 29, 2022, providing additional protections for employees who need to express breastmilk. PUMP requires the vast majority of employers to provide a nursing employee with reasonable time to express breastmilk in a private location (other than a restroom) for up to one year after the nursing child’s birth.
