About us

The Center for WorkLife Law (WLL), housed at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, is a nonprofit advocacy and research organization that seeks to advance gender and racial equality in the workplace and in education. Our current initiatives include legal advocacy to promote the rights of pregnant and breastfeeding employees; The Pregnant Scholar online toolkit on pregnancy and parenting in higher education; research on how gender bias differs by race; a path-breaking study on fair work schedules for hourly workers; social science research on interrupting bias in the legal profession, STEM, and other industries; and programs and best practices for advancing women leaders. The Center has also been a pioneer in the field of Family Responsibilities Discrimination (FRD), a form of employment discrimination against workers based on their family caregiving responsibilities.
