Break Time for Nursing Mothers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) WAGE AND HOUR DIVISION UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to provide break time and space for a covered nonexempt nursing mother to express breast milk for her nursing child for one year after her child’s birth. • Employers must allow reasonable break time whenever a covered employee needs to express breast milk. • Employers must provide covered employees with space that is: — functional for expressing milk — shielded from view — free from intrusion — available as needed, AND — NOT a bathroom . If an employer has fewer than 50 employees AND can demonstrate that compliance with this law would impose an undue hardship on the employer, that employer does not have to provide nursing breaks. Note : The FLSA requirement of break time for nursing mothers to express breast milk does not preempt state laws that provide greater protections to employees (for example, providing compensated break time, providing break time for exempt employees, or providing break time beyond one year after the child’s birth). UNLAWFUL ACTS Any employee who is “discharged or in any other manner discriminated against” because he or she has filed a complaint or cooperated in an investigation may file a retaliation complaint with the Wage and Hour Division or directly in court seeking appropriate remedies.
