Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding

For nursing mothers, the employer is to permit the female employee to take nursing break of half-an-hour twice a day during the working hours for six months immediately after her return to work from confinement. The nursing breaks are considered working time and are thus paid breaks. The two half-an-hour feeding periods can be aggregated and taken as one continuous hour, at the option of the employee and in agreement with the employer.
