Taking action against a discriminating business
Hello fellow breastfeeding moms,
I have decided to take action against a discriminating business that I once worked at for a few days.What happened was I was pumping milk on my break and I was covered up and a manager (a female...shocking) said I cannot pump in the dining room because it's supposed to be "family friendly". Shame on them! I say. Anyway, I want to take action but the problem is that I don't know how many employees work there. I have read in the breastfeeding law in the state of NY that if the business has less than 50 employees, nothing can be done.
Is there any way I can investigate the business without contacting the owner? I would like to present my case to the Dept of Health and/or other legal representative. I have a copy of the NYS Law and highlighted areas that apply to me and made notes.
Also, I would like to start a petition and send it to NYS Senator about closing the loophole in NYS. I think ALL businesses, big and small, should comply with the breastfeeding law in NY. I'd like some ideas of what to call this proposition.
Thanks for reading!
