Rights and Protections for State Personnel Who are Nursing Mothers

On April 24, 2018, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed legislation (H.B. 306) requiring the state to provide a reasonable, unpaid break time for state employees to express breast milk for a nursing child as follows:

  • After the child’s birth and each time the employee needs to express her milk.
  • Upon notice, the state must provide a specific location that is not a bathroom, where the employee may express breast milk while she is shielded from view. The location must also be separate from coworkers and the public.

The law is effective October 1, 2018.
