NC Families Care

Building a North Carolina where workers, families, and businesses thrive. Many North Carolina business owners recognize that all workers will, at some point, need time to care for themselves or a family member. Almost half of our private-sector work force does not have access to earned paid sick days and even fewer can take longer-term paid leave to address a serious health condition or welcome a new child. Research has shown that paid leave policies, such as earned paid sick days and family and medical leave insurance, benefit businesses’ bottom line through reduced turnover costs and increased productivity. Paid leave policies can help level the playing field for small businesses who often have trouble matching the more generous leave policies of larger employers. 

A broad coalition of organizations has come together to form the NC Families Care Campaign, which is pushing for policy solutions such as paid sick days and expansions to the Family Medical Leave Act.

Jackson Family Law, Raleigh, NC

Members of the Bar are asked to select the best lawyer in each field. Lawyers may not select themselves and can only vote for members of their own firms if they also chose someone outside their firms in the same category. With more weight given to outside votes, fewer than 3% of North Carolina lawyers were named to the list this year. A lawyer-led research team evaluates candidates on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Candidates also undergo peer review by practice area.
