But how long must the break be and how can an employer provide the space needed? Fortunately, the Department of Health and Human Services has recognized the challenges this requirement might impose and is preparing some guidance for release in the fall of 2012. An on-line searchable database that contains real world solutions employed by businesses across the country will be available to help you find answers that might work for your business as well. Or maybe you're ahead of the curve and already have a creative solution; if so, you can share it at www.everymother.org/workplace. Submissions will remain confidential unless permission is given to share company information.
Of course, we are here to help as well! Feel free to contact us if you have questions about this requirement and how it impacts your business!
