Apparently last week another of our coworkers complained that it made her uncomfortable. The pumping mom was called into the office, told she could not do it in the breakroom any longer, and was actually reprimanded for it. She was told she either had to use the bathroom or another room that doesn't have a lock. Another of my co-workers was very angry with this and made her a particianed area in the physicians break room. The physicians breakroom does lock, but every doctor has a key and are apparently illiterate as they come in even when she has a sign up.
I am so pissed. #1 the hospital should provide a private place with a door that locks and #2 to be REPRIMANDED for pumping in the breakroom? WTF? Nobody in management here seems to have a clue that what they are doing is illegal!
What should I suggest to this mom? She is VERY upset. She was horribly embarrassed. The original complainer has also made comments about her and other breast feeding moms, stating it's disgusting to have to hear "that" at work. Ugh! I am so disappointed in my organization right now.
