Accommodations when working off site

Travel is required by many employees. The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee recommends that the Department add clarification that it is the obligation of the employer to provide time and space, regardless of where the employee is located. In situations where the employee is off-site, the Department recommends that the employer arrange with personnel at the alternate location to allow the employee to use a space for the purpose of expressing milk.
