ACAS Guidance on Breastfeeding

Unite reps supporting women who wish to continue breast feeding when they return to work will want to know about new guidance from ACAS, the government's employment advice service. You can check how your employer's practice compares to the new guidance on accommodating breastfeeding on return to work, and it will help you negotiate any new procedures needed to meet these standards. The ACAS guidance is the minumum that all employers should, but good employers can enhance the provisions further than these minimum requirements.
