A Better Balance
About A Better Balance
A Better Balance is a legal advocacy organization dedicated to finding and implementing systemic solutions to the modern work-family push-pull. We are committed to promoting equality and expanding choices for men and women at all income levels so they may care for their families without sacrificing their economic security.
A Better Balance uses the power of the law to advance justice for workers, so they can care for themselves and their loved ones without jeopardizing their economic security.
Through legislative advocacy, direct legal services and strategic litigation, and public education, our expert legal team combats discrimination against pregnant workers and caregivers and advances supportive policies like paid sick time, paid family and medical leave, fair scheduling, and accessible, quality childcare and eldercare. When we value the work of providing care, which has long been marginalized due to sexism and racism, our communities and our nation are healthier and stronger.
We empower individuals through public education to be their own best advocates in the workplace. We are a trusted resource for those seeking support and legal representation as they navigate the patchwork of laws available to help them succeed at work while caring for family. And we are a national authority in the work-family movement, devising policies, drafting legislation, and guiding other advocates around the country to push for change.
If you are caring for a loved one while holding down a job, or are expecting a baby, and have questions about your workplace rights, please call our helpline at 1-833-633-3222 for a free, individualized and confidential consultation.
