§21-3-11. Seats for female employees.
Every person, firm or corporation employing females in any
factory, mercantile establishment, mill or workshop in this state
shall provide a reasonable number of suitable seats for the use
of such female employees, and shall permit the use of such seats
by them when they are not necessarily engaged in active duties
for which they are employed, and shall permit the use of such
seats at all times when such use would not actually and
necessarily interfere with the proper discharge of the duties of
such employees, and, where practicable, such seats shall be made
permanent fixtures and may be so constructed or adjusted that,
when not in use, they will not obstruct such female employee when
engaged in the performance of her duties.
