Please note that the following break time requirement only applies to non-exempt employees/students, which includes Classified and Non-Exempt Professional Staff.
Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are now required to furnish "reasonable" breaks to nursing mothers to express milk for their infants. Employers must also provide a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from co-workers and the public, which may be used by an employee/student to express breast milk.
In order to comply with the Act, the Office of Human Resources has designated an HR Representative to work directly with nursing mothers who would like to participate in this program. Kathy Eghoian, Coordinator - Benefits, Department of Human Resources. She can be reached by Contact Us">email or at 702-651-7457. For those who are interested in the program, please find attached the program guidelines, sample request letter and Department of Labor Fact Sheet.
