On their return to work after availing maternity leave, breastfeeding employees must be granted breastfeeding breaks on their request. The request for such breaks has to be accompanied by medical certificate certifying that she is breastfeeding. The breastfeeding breaks have to be taken as follows: either two periods of 45 minutes each at the start and end of the employee's normal working day or a single 90 minute period when the working day is divided by a one hour break only and/or the woman cannot breastfeed her child at a location close to her workplace. Breastfeeding breaks must be considered as working time and paid accordingly.
