Q. What are my entitlements to Breastfeeding breaks

The Breastfeeding Policy, HR 006/2021, was approved by the HSE and is effective from 2nd February 2021 and will apply to all employees in the public health service. If you are breastfeeding, after returning from maternity leave, you are entitled to breastfeeding breaks at work for up to one hour per normal working day. This is in addition to your normal rest breaks. The breaks may be taken until the child’s second birthday.
