Do you work at a Child-Friendly Business in Fresno County?

Since 2006, the annual Child-Friendly Business Awards have recognized businesses that support parent employees to balance the demands of work and being a parent.

Balancing work and family

Balancing work and family is not always easy. Whether it’s attending your child’s school activity or having a space to breastfeed, workplace flexibility makes a big difference.

In California, there are six laws that every working parent should know.

Share these laws with your employer and discuss which one could help you.
