Employers and Employer Groups

Information on where employers can find resources and assistance

Most employers want to comply with the law, but many need guidance and support for implementation, especially to ensure they are aware of the most creative, cost-effective solutions available that also minimize impact on their operations. The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee recommends including citations with links to existing resources hosted by other federal agencies, especially the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office on Women's Health Supporting Nursing Moms At Work: Employer Solutions resource, and the Health Resources & Services Administration's Business Case for Breastfeeding.


Many state breastfeeding coalitions also provide support and resources to help employers develop lactation policies and programs. The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee Coalitions Directory provides an updated list of state, territorial, and tribal breastfeeding coalitions: www.usbreastfeeding.org/coalitions-directory
