Employee rights extend to breastfeeding mothers

A recently proposed bill would, if passed, would protect the rights of New Jersey breastfeeding mothers at work. Lawmakers are hoping that this proposed bill will eliminate workplace discrimination against these women and protect employee rights by requiring employers to provide a place for mothers to pump throughout the day. Under this new law, it would be illegal to fire a woman for breastfeeding or pumping.

This year, Congress passed a new overtime rule that would increase the salary limit of workers who would be eligible for and guaranteed to be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours a week. The new rule, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is ready to go into effect Dec. 1 this year. However, the U.S. House of Representatives in late September passed a bill that aims to delay that start for six months. It doesn't seem the rule will actually be delayed, though, as President Barack Obama has released a statement saying he would veto the bill that aims to delay the start of the overtime rule.
