Philadelphia Breastfeeding Ordinance

On September 3, 2014, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed into law the Breastfeeding Accommodation Bill, No. 130922, as a part of the Philadelphia Fair Practices Ordinance. The new law is effective immediately, and it requires businesses with one or more employees to provide reasonable accommodations for women needing to pump breast milk in a safe, sanitary, and private non-bathroom space as long as the requirements do not impose an undue hardship on the employer. In addition, employers have to provide unpaid breaks or allow employees to use paid breaks or mealtimes to express breast milk.
