ACLU files Notice of Claim Against Colorado school district on behalf of breastfeeding teacher

Reportedly, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a “notice of claim” on behalf of a teacher allegedly terminated for pumping breast milk on the job. The ACLU claims the school failed to renew a female teacher's teaching contract because of her pumping schedule. Under a state law passed in 2008, Colorado employers are required to make reasonable accommodations to allow mothers to pump milk at work.
