Disgrace at my DHs work, what can he or i do?

My DH works for UPS, in the office side... and wednesday he came home sad and told me that Vanessa, a new mom (8 weeks PP, EPing) was pumping in the bathroom and a not so nice coworker told her her pump was too loud and it offended her. Well the not so nice lady, went to HR and told HR that she is grosed out by it bc she knows what she is doing since her pump is loud. The HR lady told Vanessa that her pumping makes employees uncomfortable and she needs to stop pumping.

what can DH or i do? he is close with her, he could prob tell her how i feel about bfing and i could back her up with it. but HR cannot tell her to stop can they? i mean she is pumping her milk in the BATHROOM bc they wont let her use the printer paper closet... this makes me fumming, im half tempted to go sit in thier lobby and nurse samonia, i mean if it meant that my dh wouldnt lose his job for it i would..

WWYD???

Del. Code Ann. tit. 31 310 (1997) entitles a mother to breastfeed her child in any location of a place of public accommodation wherein the mother is otherwise permitted

i wonder if that applys to pumping...

Depends on the state and they may legally have to provide somewhere other than the bathroom for her to pump in. I would go find the other lady that was grossed out by it and egg her house. Not really, but she is being quite a twit about it don't you agree? Find the BF laws in your state and she can take them to work with her. It would be more powerful if you DH went up to bat for her and told them that he supported her.

Re: Disgrace at my DHs work, what can he or i do?

thats AWFUL! arent jobs required to make a mom comfortable to nurse or pump? i just started working again after 3 yrs and my job is such a small business (6 ppl total - including owners) plus its a natural baby store - soooooo they understand a bit more than a corporation would...

i would organize a nurse in...all your friends BUT not you.

a while back there was a nurse in at the DFW airport because of an airline/nursing issue. i helped organize but didnt go bc my dad works for delta
