They cover:

  • Changes in the Minnesota’s Women’s Economic Security Act (WESA), which include more frequent breaks, seating arrangements, and lifting limits for pregnant employees.
  • A focus on creating safe, private spaces for pumping that are not bathrooms, with access to electrical outlets.
  • The definition of retaliation against employees who assert these rights is more robust in the new legislation.
  • Resources and tools for pregnant and pumping workers to know their rights.
