A New Indiana Law

Wawasee Community Schools and other Indiana corporations are preparing for the new school year. Among the changes is a new state law, SEA 219, which requires school corporations to provide paid break time each day to an employee who needs to express breast milk for the employee's infant child. The break occurs at the same time as any break time that is already provided to the employee. Efforts on the part of the school corporation to provide a private room or other location close to the employee's work area must be made. The statute prohibits a toilet stall from being provided for this break. In addition, reasonable efforts must be made to provide cold storage for the keeping of the expressed milk. We will be reviewing our employee policies and facility options to comply with the new legislation.
