Indiana Code 5-10-6 allows for paid breaks for an employee to express her breast milk for her infant. (for the state and political subdivisions of the state)

Indiana Code
22-2-14 allows to the extent reasonably possible, for an employer with 25 employees or more to provide a location, other than a toilet stall, where an employee can express her breast milk in privacy during any period away from her assigned duties and to provide a refrigerator or other cold storage space for keeping milk that has been expressed; or allow the employee to provide her own portable cold storage device for keeping milk that has been expressed until the end of the work day.
