Lacey Houle, Community Outreach and Resource Planning Specialist for the U.S. Department of Labor, joined us to discuss what business owners need to know about break time for nursing mothers.

The employer must also have a shielded, private place other than a bathroom for the mother to express milk.
She also discussed how this impacts overtime pay and the undue hardship exemption.
