Carrie Hoffman Discusses Legal Protection for Breast-Feeding Moms with NBC’s Today

01.04.12

Gardere Labor and Employment Partner Carrie B. Hoffman discussed the new federal mandate for employers to provide women with breaks and a place to breast feed with NBC’s Today. Although the rules haven’t been finalized, the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour division’s enforcers are going after employers who don’t make accommodations for working moms.

“It’s been the law for a while, and they don’t have to have the final regulations to be able to enforce it,” Ms. Hoffman said. The new law, she continued, is hardest for smaller firms to comply with, and for retailers in particular where space is at a premium.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
