When an employer is faced with both a state and federal law on the same topic, in this instance lactation breaks, the employer is bound to comply with both of those laws. Generally speaking, the easiest way to ensure compliance with both laws would be to follow the law that is most generous to the employee. Therefore, employers must be knowledgeable of both the federal and state laws on lactation breaks and ensure that the policy of the organization meets all the requirements imposed by state and federal government.
The same also holds true for
Collective Bargaining Agreements. A Collective Bargaining Agreement is a contract between the employer and unionized employees. In this instance, the employer would have an obligation to fulfill the promises of the agreement as well as to comply with the provisions outlined in federal law.
