Women’s Bureau Initiatives on Work-life Balance & Equal Pay Announced at the White House

From the US DOL Women’s Bureau.

On Tuesday, July 20, Vice President Joe Biden held a Middle Class Task Force event at the White House to announce initiatives and developments in the areas of equal pay and work-life balance – two of the Women’s Bureau’s four priority issues. The White House and government agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of Labor (DOL), announced several new programs and collaborative, cross-agency efforts. One key collaborative effort is the Equal Pay Enforcement Task Force recently created by the President and designed to improve interagency coordination and enforcement efforts for maximum effectiveness.

In addition, as part of the Department of Labor’s ongoing efforts to promote and improve business practices and policies that provide greater work-life balance and workplace flexibility, Secretary Solis announced the Women’s Bureau’s National Dialogue on Workplace Flexibility will kick off this fall.
