For up to one year after a child’s birth, any employee who is breastfeeding her child will be provided reasonable break times as needed to express breast milk for her baby. The College has designated rooms for this purpose. A small refrigerator reserved for the specific storage of breast milk is available. Any breast milk stored in the refrigerator must be labeled with the name of the employee and the date of expressing the breast milk. Any nonconforming products stored in the refrigerator may be disposed of. Employees storing milk in the refrigerator assume all responsibility for the safety of the milk and the risk of harm for any reason, including improper storage or refrigeration and tampering. Nursing mothers wishing to use this room must request/reserve the room by contacting Human Resources. Employees who work off-site or in other locations will be accommodated with a private area as necessary.
