Can I pump breast milk at work in Nevada?

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 05, 2015 | 0 Comments

In most cases, yes. Federal law requires most Nevada employers to provide space and time for nursing mothers to pump.

Specifically under 29 U.S.C. § 207, employers must make the following two accommodations to Nevada mothers who breastfeed:

  • allow for reasonable breaks throughout the workday to pump for a year following the child's birth
  • provide a pumping space in the workplace other than the restroom that is shielded from view and free from intruding coworkers

Employers who do not employ fifty people or more do not have to make these accommodations if doing so would cause the employer to suffer undue financial or logistical hardship.

Furthermore, employees are not entitled to monetary compensation for the work-time they miss while breast-pumping. Read more information on Nevada breastfeeding laws.
