Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for breastfeeding mothers, including reasonable break time and a clean private space to feed her infant or to express milk. The United States Breastfeeding Committee website is a great way to become more educated on protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding mothers.
Utah law states that city and county governing bodies may not inhibit a woman's right to breastfeed in public and states that a breastfeeding woman is not in violation of any obscene or indecent exposure laws. Additionally, Utah Legislature recently passed a resolution in 2012 encouraging employers to recognize the benefits of breastfeeding and to provide unpaid break time and appropriate space for employees who need to breastfeed or express their milk for their infant children.
