Denying Lactation Accommodation Requests in California
My employee is returning from pregnancy leave and has asked to have time off and a suitable place to express milk at work. We have never had this request before. Can we deny her request and tell her to come back to work when she no longer has this need? Alternatively, can we require her to use her car, or the restroom, or go home? We really do not have a place at work designated for that purpose.
California does not have a time limit for providing lactation accommodation.

No, you may not deny the employee’s request to express milk at work or keep her from returning to work until she no longer has that need.

Both California and federal law require that all employers, regardless of company size, reasonably accommodate an employee’s request to express milk in private at work.
In addition, for those employers that have employees working in San Francisco, the city has enacted the San Francisco “ Lactation in the Workplace Ordinance,” which applies to all private employers with one or more employees working within the geographical boundary of the city.
