LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1576, as introduced, Committee on Judiciary. Superior court: lactation rooms.
Existing law provides for the classification and appointment of superior court officers, deputies, assistants, and employees as are deemed necessary for the performance of the duties and the exercise of the powers conferred by law upon the superior court and its members. Existing law generally requires the superior court, as an employer, to provide employees with the use of a lactation room or other location for employees to express milk in private. A lactation room or location is required to provide, among other things, a clean and safe place to sit.
This bill would require the superior court to allow an attorney or other officer of the superior court access to a lactation room that is provided to court employees.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO

SECTION 1.

69894.
 The superior court shall allow an attorney or other officer of the superior court access to a lactation room that is provided to court employees in compliance with Section 1031 of the Labor Code.
