Human Resources Announces New Lactation Accommodations Policy
Saint Louis University supports female faculty and staff by providing paid and unpaid breaks for women who have chosen to breastfeed after they return to work. It is the University's goal to extend that support by establishing guidelines to allow breastfeeding mothers to express milk while at work.
Furthermore, the University is committed to complying with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requirements to provide reasonable breaks and private locations for employees to express breast milk for up to one year after giving birth.
The new policy, with a list of designated lactation areas and privacy signage, can be found by visiting http://www.slu.edu/x47910.xml. The list will be updated as new locations are identified across campus.
Please contact your HR consultant with any questions. The consultant contact list can be found at http://www.slu.edu/x40567.xml.
