Ex-worker sues KFC for making breastfeeding difficult

A former Kentucky Fried Chicken worker is suing two Delaware franchises because she says they made it difficult for her to pump breast milk during work.

The Wilmington News Journal reports Autumn Lampkins' lawsuit accused stores in Camden and Dover of making the task so difficult that her milk supply dried up.

The lawsuit says Lampkin's was often unable to pump when needed and was denied privacy.

It says she was hired a few months before giving birth and was able to pump about once during each 10-hour training shift.

The lawsuit read: "This willful, intentional, and unlawful gender-based harassment and discrimination violates the laws and regulations of both the United States ... and the State of Delaware."

"(She) had to resort to giving her son formula sooner than she wanted to since she was unable to pump breastmilk at work."
