We've previously reported on the requirement in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as "Obamacare") that employers provide unpaid breaks and a private place for employees who are nursing mothers to express breast milk. A federal court in Iowa recently dismissed some claims of a convenience store employee who alleged that her employer failed to do so. The court said that the plaintiff had the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor but not a lawsuit against the store chain. According to the plaintiff, she was told to express milk in a store office, which worked out fine until she learned that there was a surveillance camera in the office. When she told management about the camera, they refused to remove the camera but told her to cover the lens while she was expressing milk. She alleged that she continued to feel uncomfortable and that her milk production suffered as a result. Although the court dismissed her "accommodation" claim, it allowed her retaliation claim to go forward. (She alleged that she was constructively discharged after complaining.)
