Big News for Nursing Moms as House Bill 2593 Takes Effect

New Laws Impact Oregon Employers

It’s a new day for Oregon employers… and nursing moms! As of September 29, 2019, House Bill 2593 became effective, calling on every employer to provide nursing mothers with a reasonable (generally unpaid) rest period to express milk.  And those breaks must be provided each time the employee has a need to express milk.

The head of KP’s employment law department, Kurt Barker, recently covered this new law and much more in front of a record-setting crowd for HRACO (Human Resources Association of Central Oregon).

Here are two slides from Kurt’s September 18 HRACO legal update about all the new laws rolling in over the next year:
