The University recently adopted a Lactation Policy made effective on 12/20/2016. This new policy reinforces the University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for employees and students who are breastfeeding. The policy enables employees and students to express milk in a private place, have reasonable break time and a location within five minutes of their work and study areas.
Please review the full policy at http://policy.uconn.edu/?p=7009. Procedures, which include specific guidance for students, employees, graduate assistants and supervisors, are available at the end of the policy.
We ask that managers who supervise employees with limited computer access to please post the policy in a common area.
