Survey: Accommodations for Mothers Nursing/Pumping in Massachusetts Courts

This article is for informational purposes only. It is not intended to be used in place of professional or legal advice in any way. Lawyers, law students, judges, and other legal professionals in Massachusetts can find more on scheduling a Free & Confidential consultation with a law practice advisor here.

We’re sourcing input from lawyers practicing in Massachusetts state courts and before administrative tribunals and boards to establish standards on accommodations for nursing/pumping mothers.

In 2018, the Massachusetts Federal Court adopted an order regarding accommodations for nursing mothers. This was an effort led by the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts (WBA) and the Massachusetts Employment Lawyers Association (MELA). The order provides procedures to accommodate nursing mothers who have business at the Court.

However, accommodations remain an issue in the state courts and administrative tribunals and boards. The WBA in collaboration with Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers is working to establish standards for accommodations in state courts, administrative tribunals, and administrative boards throughout the Commonwealth.

In order to move forward with this initiative, we are looking to collect data from women that practice in the state courts, and before administrative tribunals and boards. We appreciate your responses and will follow up with you once we begin work.

TAKE THE SURVEY HERE.
