Lansing Community College Human Resources

In accordance with legal requirements and college policies, LCC provides a supportive environment for employees who elect to express their milk during work hours, and expects that all employees will assist in providing a positive atmosphere of support for employees who elect to do so. LCC also extends this support to our students who elect to express their milk on campus.

Milk expression breaks

The college is required to provide a reasonable amount of break time to express milk as frequently as needed by the nursing employee. The frequency of breaks needed to express milk as well as the duration of each break will likely vary.

Employees (including student employees) may use their paid breaks and/or unpaid lunch periods for the purpose of expressing milk.

Lactation rooms

The college has identified several rooms that can be used for breast milk expression. These rooms meet statutory requirements and may be used by employees and students. Room locations follow:
