No Private Right of Action for Expressing Milk

ExpressMike Maslanka writes over at Work Matters about Salz v. Casey's Marketing Co. (N.D. Iowa), which interpreted a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that requires employers to provide female employees a place other than a bathroom to express milk for their infants.  The court dismissed on 12(b)(6) a claim by a a woman that her employer failed to do so.  The court held that the law does not provide a private right of action -- enforcement is only through the Department of Labor.
