A Better Balance: Babygate

A Better Balance is a legal team fighting to give American workers the time and flexibility they need to care for their families. We help to ensure that families are treated fairly—not punished—in the workplace.

ABB leads the charge for policies that help families, such as sick leave, family leave, fair and flexible work and stronger legal protections for pregnant workers and caregivers. Although our work benefits families of all income levels, it is low-income families that benefit most because they are the least likely to have access to benefits like sick or family leave. Our efforts help people who work outside and inside the home achieve a better balance between providing for their families and caring for them.

At some point in our lives, we are all likely to be primary caregivers to a child, spouse, parent or other family member, or to need care ourselves.

Caregiving is an issue that affects everyone.
