  • In order to comply with the new ordinance, you would need to:
    • Not a bathroom; 

    • In close proximity to the employee’s work area;

    • Shielded from view and free from intrusion from co-workers and the public;

    • Safe, clean and free of toxic or hazardous materials;

    • Contains a surface (e.g., a table of shelf) to place a breast pump and other personal items;

    • Has a place to sit; and

    • Has access to electricity.

    Additionally, employers must provide, in close proximity to the employee’s work area, access to a refrigerator where the employee can store breast milk and access to a sink with running water.
