Can you be fired for pumping at work?  A podcast interview with Jake Marcus.

July 03, 2012

You can’t be fired for being pregnant, but what about breastfeeding or pumping?

We’re very pleased to share a podcast interview with Jake Marcus, JD on breastfeeding and sex discrimination law.

Jake is the owner of Breastfeedinglaw.com, and is a founding partner of the law firm Cipolla Associates.  She is a lawyer, writer, and speaker who specializes in gender issues such as breastfeeding.  She is co-owner of Lactspeak and Sustainable Mothering.

Jake spoke with Tanya Lieberman about how breastfeeding is treated in the workplace and in public places under sex discrimination law.   They discussed federal and state law, court decisions, and state legislation on the horizon which would protect mothers from discrimination in the workplace because of breastfeeding or pumping.
