Caring for the kids, doing chores around the home, and working hard to provide financially for the family – today’s fathers must do it all.
This podcast, the audio of our recent webinar of the same name, has a panel of pros dispensing advice on:
- using employer policies and the law to support men considering starting a family
- paternity leave
- flexible work schedules
- caring for sick kids while holding a job.

A Better Balance leverages the power of the law to ensure that no worker has to make the impossible choice between their job and their family. We lead the charge for policies that help families, including paid sick leave and family leave, flexible work, pay equity, and policies that combat discrimination based on pregnancy and family status. Our efforts help people who work outside and inside the home achieve a better balance between providing for their families and caring for them. We believe that when all working parents and caregivers have a fair shot in the workplace, our families, our communities, and our nation are healthier and stronger.
