Advancing the rights of working families.

For Policy Makers

Join us in the movement to reshape laws and workplace practices to fit the needs of today’s labor force.

A Better Balance is an expert legal team fighting to give American workers the time and flexibility they need to care for their families.  We collaborate with advocates around the country and work on the ground in New York City on a range of work/life supports.  

We’re advancing policies in four major areas: paid sick days, fairness in the workplace, paid family leave insurance, and valuing carework.

We issue reports, write model laws, provide testimony, and assist policy-makers at all levels of government.  To read more, please visit our Policy Resources page.
