New California Law Adds Protection
for Breastfeeding Women
AB 2386 became effective on January 1, 2013. The law amends the California Fair Employment and Housing Act and clarifies that the term "sex" includes breastfeeding or medical conditions related to breastfeeding in addition to gender, pregnancy, childbirth, and medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth.
Discrimination against breastfeeding women is explicitly prohibited in employment and housing accommodations.
