Employers are obliged under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 to provide “suitable facilities” for a breastfeeding employee to “rest”. The Approved Code of Practice states that these facilities should be conveniently situated in relation to sanitary facilities and, where necessary, include the facility to lie down. These “rest facilities” are very likely to also be a suitable place for breastfeeding or expressing. Although private, the ladies toilet is never a suitable place in which to breastfeed a baby or collect milk.
The Health and Safety Executive and guidance from the European Commission recommend that employers should provide:
Access to a private room where women can breastfeed or express breast milk;
Use of secure, clean refrigerators for storing expressed breast milk while at work, and
Facilities for washing, sterilising and storing receptacles.
PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT (IN UK) You are protected against sexual harassment which could include detrimental treatment or offensive teasing on the grounds of breastfeeding.
