Where do you pump? your car? the bathroom? Do they let you use the office?
I was kind of offended when I went to work today (walmart) (my first day) and was told I had to pump in the bathroom. They have a family bathroom so I didnt have to worry about other people coming in, but there still wasnt anything to sit on besides the toilet so I just stood the whole time and used the changing table as a counter. Wondering if I should be offended or if its common for people to have to use the restroom at work to pump.
**Thank you everyone. I printed out papers about the law just in case I needed them and went to work today. When it was time for my first break I went to the HR lady (who again, I was with today) and asked if there was another room I could pump. after her repeatedly telling me "you can use the family restroom" everytime I said "you are legally required to provide me a room other than a restroom with a chair. And I will not pump in the restroom again" she finally called for a manager. I think we went through it 3-4 times and I was just about to pull the papers out. I had a choice of a storage room (with no chair or counters) or the invoice office (where 2 ladies work but theres a chair and table). I chose the invoice office and they then set up a little area in it specifically for me, using a garmet coset that is large enough for 2 chairs, and it was set next to a short filing cabinet so that I could have a work area as well. It was perfect. I was very comfortable in it and I wasnt exposed to anyone. I am very satisfied with what I was given today! THANK YOU. I never would have known without this group!**
