    Default (MI) Pumping laws at work--PLEASE HELP!!!

    I am back to work after having my 3rd child. Before, I always had a full paycheck, including any breaks. Now, my paycheck is short because I am pumping during breaks rather than having a snack. Does anyone know if there are any laws in the State of Michigan regarding pumping at work? This is upsetting to me and seems like I am being discouraged against nursing my new baby. What does anyone else know about this?

    are you clocking out during your breaks to pump, because i know in cali. i dont clock out to pump just use my 15 min to pump and go back to work. you are allowed 15 in every 4 hours paid for and 30 min lunch for every 6 hours unpaid or paid depending on employer. but you should be paid for your breaks HTH

    I don't punch out, but I never did before either. This seems unfair. They never even said that they weren't going to pay me, they just started taking it out!!

    I found this site. You may want to do some more research on it. Or, maybe someone else has the link for all of the state bf laws. I think I say one of the LLL leaders post it before.

    Really, if they give employees a break, it should not matter what the employee is doing with that time (snack or pumping).

    yep think I would be talking to someone about that because it is completly unfair. You should be able to do whatever you wish with your break

    I suggest you talk to the HR manager and discuss your concerns. It really sounds unfair.
