I feel very sorry for the woman involved! I hope she is getting the support she needs. I am glad they caught the person who did the taping.

why would she be upset over this. breast feeding is the natural healthy way to feed a baby. this must be another slow news day.

this isnt news. she was pumping her breasts not feeding her baby.why was she pumping her breast in a room that was not a restroom? slow news day is right! heres a family man working to support a family in a job that is a regrettably targetable job. she shouldnt have been there to begin with. she did this in a security room with surveillance cameras in it,how convenient! are we as taxpayers really going to foot the bill for this case? i would think steelcase is the reason for this outrage and not the pawnship of a man who simply is on the block to take the fall for a company who screwed up.

ok, if this woman was not allowed a completely private room to use the breast pump because she was required to be near the phone, then wouldn't that subject other workers to some type of "sexual harassment"???? maybe that is why he videotaped it, to show, "hey, I shouldn't have to be subject to this when I walk in the office..."

I think the story states that she was given permission to use a special room, not the security room off the lobby. This is a violation of her private rights. I know breast feeding is a natural thing but some women want to keep it private.

I am sure there is more to the story than captured here. I would say here is a family man invading someone privacy and not minding his own JOB. Watching her was not in his JOB description! he should ave minded his own business and he would still have a job!

you fools know nothing. the man was in the wrong. it wasn't a security room, a private conference room where he set up a camera for the sole purpose of seeing her naked. get a clue

You must not know much about breastfeeding. When a woman needs to pump, it's kind of hard to do it unless you're comfortable. Does sitting on a toilet with a pump attached to your chest sound comfortable to you? Also, most pumps are electric and need an outlet nearby...not likely in a public restroom. And there are concerns about cleanliness when it comes to pumping and storing breastmilk. Doing so in a restroom is one of the most unsanitary things you can do.
Please try to be a little more understanding. This woman is trying to do what is best for her baby, and this creep was violating her privacy by taping her.

Why on earth would she pump in a rest room. Do you prepare your food in your bathroom?

Pumping the most perfect form of nurishment for your baby is not sexual harassment. There are laws that protect breast feeding mom from people like him and you. She was in a private room btw.
