Westminster College supports the rights of nursing mothers at school and in the workplace. In accordance with Title IX, the Affordable Care Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act, Westminster is dedicated to making its best efforts to accommodate requests from nursing mothers for a private space to express breast milk on campus and for the use of employee break time or leave for this purpose.
Upon request, Westminster will provide employees with a room where they can privately express breast milk. Westminster has dedicated a room in the Giovale Library (room 033) for this purpose. The nursing room is shielded from view, has an occupied/not occupied sign, and has a chair and refrigerator. This may be used on a first-come, first-served basis and can be reserved by scheduling through Outlook with firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check availability through the scheduling function in Outlook.
Westminster provides staff reasonable break time for up to one year after they give birth to express milk. Staff may utilize their paid break periods to express milk, use medical leave, take an unpaid break period, or make up the time used by starting work earlier or staying late with permission of their supervisor.
