Discrimination Law Protecting Breastfeeding Workers Signed

Posted on

Discrimination Law Protecting Breastfeeding Workers SignedGovernor Chris Christie signed a new law protecting breastfeeding workers from discrimination on Monday. The new law arrives one week before Governor-Elect Phil Murphy takes over the position. It is an amendment to New Jersey’s civil rights law, and prohibits employers from discriminating against breastfeeding workers or firing them because they nurse. Businesses must also allow the workers enough breaks, and private places where the mothers can pump. Apparently, it closes the gap left over from the Affordable Care Act, and now covers teachers, and small business employees.

For working mothers who breastfeed their children, the new discrimination law in New Jersey will allow them to continue to nurse their babies as they see fit without repercussions, and hopefully encourage businesses to support their employees. Sadly, discrimination against employees for a variety of reasons occurs on a frequent basis despite laws that are in place.

If you have been the victim of breastfeeding or any other workplace discrimination, contact our South Jersey employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. at 215-569-1999 or contact us online.
