Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill requires all Georgia's state and local governments to provide paid break time of a reasonable duration to an employee who desires to express breast milk during work hours.  Each government must provide a room or other location, other than a restroom, in close proximity to the employee's work area where the employee can express breast milk in privacy.  The legislation also authorizes the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Labor to revise "deductible earnings" (which will change how worker's compensation benefits are calculated); develop rules for revising benefits and their distribution during an emergency; and changes how benefits are calculated.
