A Return to Work Event for Employers

A Return to Work Event for Employers

Please let your employer know about this upcoming presentation (and free lunch!) that is being offered at Ameritas on March 21st. It is a perfect way for businesses to learn how to comply with the newly amended Fair Labor Standards Act and support breastfeeding mothers in the work force.

The panel will feature two MilkWorks board members, attorney Adam Prochaska and Liz Ring-Carlson, a public affairs manager at State Farm who has returned-to-work and breastfed two babies (with a third on the way!).

Please help us spread the word about this event!
