New Acas Guidance for Breastfeeding in the Workplace

This post was written by: Aston Bond Law Firm

Acas has published a guide, Accommodating breastfeeding employees in the workplace, to assist employers and employees with managing requests to breastfeed in the workplace. The guidance identifies employers’ legal requirements in relation to employees’ requests for facilities to express and store breast milk and time away from work to do so. It also provides examples of good practice for employers to support employees who are still breastfeeding by facilitating their return to work.

Our solicitors in Slough assist clients across England and Wales with employment law matters. This includes the law surrounding breastfeeding in the workplace. Furthermore, due to the fact that we act for and support the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers our team of solicitors are compassionate and experienced in representing individuals who believe they have been wrongfully denied breastfeeding rights in the workplace. Moreover, we also assist employers in relation to breastfeeding in the workplace.
