'Rights' of breast feeding mothers who work out of the home?

Can anyone point me in the direction of any legislation for the employers of breastfeeding mothers? I am aware that there is 'expressing' legislation (ie place to express, fridge, etc) but it needs to be explicit.

Many thanks in advance

guidance here

There is no actual legal requirement to provide mothers with areas to express and store milk. It is seen as good practice though. The NHS promotes support for breastfeeding employees. It may need to be specific guidance from your own profession you need. Union can help.
