Our Mission

As leaders in the fight for the millions of workers and students responsible for providing care for their loved ones, the Center for WorkLife Law is an advocacy and research organization committed to advancing racial, gender, and class equity. At WorkLife Law, we address inequality at the national level and in states around the country by 1) Promoting structural policy change in workplaces and school, 2) Offering direct assistance to workers and students facing discrimination, and 3) Providing technical support for litigation that expands legal rights. 


These are just some of the problems that U.S. workers currently face. At the Center for WorkLife Law, we intervene on these problems through both systems-level change and individual interventions.

Advocating for Strong Implementation to Protect Pregnant Workers

Today the Center for WorkLife Law filed comments with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) offering feedback on its proposed regulations implementing the Pregnant Worker Fairness Act. While the law is already robust, our priority is advocating for the strongest interpretation of the law to protect workers, but especially historically excluded communities, who need accommodations to stay healthy during pregnancy, childbirth, or if they have related medical conditions.
