Lactation policy approved

Lactation policy approved

On Jan. 4, Chancellor Philip L. Dubois approved Policy Statement No. 136 “Lactation Policy.” The purpose of the policy is to provide employees who are nursing mothers with a private place and reasonable break time to express breast milk for a period of up to one year after the birth of the employee’s child.  The policy was prompted by and is in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and with the policy of the Office of State Personnel.

Deans, department chairs and other supervisors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with this policy and to contact human resources with any questions.
