How do I go about asking a new employer for pumping breaks? Should I have disclosed this at my interview?

Federal law requires the majority of employers to provide reasonable break time for nursing mothers to express breastmilk. So, the law is on your side. I don't think it was necessary at an interview, but I think you should tell them ASAP. Do you get any breaks already worked into your day that you could utilize?

Oh wow.

Yeah I think it is something you should have disclosed in your interview.. Granted they can't deny you the breaks.

What kind of job is it?

Can you go into an office and keep working while pumping?

If you get breaks, you can pump then. They are required by law to allow you to pump and to provide you a place that is not a bathroom to pump.
