Breastfeeding Discrimination Now Prohibited Under NJLAD

Printer-friendly version

NJ’s Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) has been amended to prohibit employers from refusing to hire, to discharge or otherwise discriminate against an individual on the basis of breastfeeding.  Additionally, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations for the expression of milk during the workday, such as breaks for the purpose of expressing milk and a private location, unless the employer can demonstrate an undue hardship on the business operations.  This law applies to NJ employers regardless of size.
