A 795 : Requires employer to provide certain accommodations to employee who is breast feeding

A 795  (Timberlake, Jasey, McKnight)As an organization that is predominately female, NJEA has always supported equality in the workplace. Likewise, we are committed to advancing the human and civil rights of all people, including our members, students and their families. This legislation will clarify New Jersey’s anti-discrimination laws to accommodate employees that are breast feeding a child for as long as they desire. Therefore, it will help ensure that new mothers are treated fairly in the workplace and can provide the necessary nutrition for their children.

NJEA encourage you to vote YES on A 795
