Under the new PUMP Act, employees in all states are now allowed to sue their employers for lack of compliance — even if they haven’t filed a complaint with the Department of Labor!
A lawsuit can be filed right away in the following circumstances:
· For violations of the break time requirement.
· If the employer has indicated it has no intention of providing private space for pumping.
· If an employee has been fired for requesting break time or space.
