I have a friend in WI whos boss said that she can't pump at work, she doesn't get breaks and she's there 6 hours.  She is trying to EBF but her boss is being a jerk, is this legal???  I know in TX it's not!  Any help please would be greatly appreciated.

This is all I can find =( It doesn't specify work environment BFing rules. So IDK if you can call it illegal or not.

That's what I found from the other link you gave me.  I couldn't believe that there wasn't more.  I feel bad for her that she doesn't have more rights in this situation.
