[url=“”>Lawyers as Employers- Part 1.</A>
Lawyers are focused on the demands of practicing law and running their practices. Often, they do not have time to dedicate to managing their employees. And, in fact, some lawyers may not see themselves as employers. However, the success of any business, including law firms, is tied directly to its employees. Competent and professional employees are critical to a firm’s ability to produce quality work and keep good clients.

<a >Indiana Joins the List of States Providing Legal Protections to Nursing Mothers At the Workplace.</A>
Returning to work is often cited as one of the main reasons that nursing mothers discontinue breastfeeding. Now, a growing number of states - in recognition of the health benefits of breastfeeding for the nursing mother and child - have passed specific laws giving nursing mothers the right to breastfeed and/or express breast milk in the workplace. In the past year alone, the following jurisdictions became breastfeeding-friendly for working mothers: the District of Columbia, Montana (public employers only), New Mexico, New York, and Oregon. Wyoming and Arkansas passed general laws in 2007 stating that a mother has a right to breastfeed an infant child in any public places where the mother may legally be or where others are present, which does not expressly specify, but could be interpreted to include, places of employment.
