Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in Texas

A friend of mine wants to pump her breast milk at her work. She works in a cubicle but was told she had to take unpaid time off to do this instead of doing it while she worked. Under Texas law it's legal to breastfeed in public. Wouldn't it be legal to pump in public based on the same law and therefore illegal for them to stop her?
