Lactation Accommodation Program
The County of Los Angeles recognizes that breastmilk is the optimal food for growth and development of infants and encourages employees and management to have a positive accepting attitude toward employed mothers and breastfeeding. The County of Los Angeles promotes and supports breastfeeding and the expression of breast milk by employees who are breastfeeding when they return to work. Breastfeeding reduces serious acute and chronic diseases, including obesity. Healthier employees and babies mean fewer employee absences and lower health care costs.
All County Departments must provide a reasonable amount of break time and make reasonable efforts to provide the use of appropriate space for employees who desire to express milk for their infant child during work hours (PPG 705).
