Del. Worker Files Complaint Over Breast Pumping

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware state worker has filed a federal complaint accusing her supervisor of failing to provide adequate accommodations for her to pump breast milk as required under federal law.

Nicole DeForest, a secretary with the state's Division of Facilities Management, filed the complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

She says when she returned to work from maternity leave, her supervisor suggested she pump in a bathroom, then a utility closet, then a shared office space and then a conference room.

DeForest says that she planned to nurse her now-14-month-old daughter Elly for a year but that her milk dried up over the stress of the situation.

Human resources representatives at the office declined to comment on the case, saying it's a personnel matter.
