Our mission is to promote equality and expand choices for men and women at all income levels so they may care for their families without sacrificing their economic security. We employ a range of legal strategies to promote flexible workplace policies, end discrimination against caregivers and value the work of caring for families.
The founders of A Better Balance are a group of lawyers who have successfully worked together on a variety of women's rights and economic issues and now seek to forge a comprehensive multi-strategic approach to addressing the work-family dilemma. We are particularly well qualified to take on the task of transforming the American workplace and raising awareness of the importance of caregiving in public policy decisions. We have extensive experience building coalitions, advocating for change, litigating impact cases, developing new legislation and educating employers, labor unions and the public on economic justice issues important to women.
In the past year A Better Balance has: represented clients suffering from pregnancy discrimination to get them back to work; helped to pass stronger pregnancy discrimination laws around the country; and guaranteed a right to paid sick time for millions of workers in New York City and across the country.
A Better Balance needs communication support, administrative support, overhead support, and additional legal staffing so that we can grow our Southern Office and expand out reach throughout middle Tennessee.
