Dissatisfaction with work/life balance has been documented as a major reason lawyers leave their firms, and many lawyers cite the lack of viable, non-stigmatized balanced hours options as a significant factor. This book -- addressed primarily to law firm managers, administrators, and human resources professionals -- presents the business case for balanced hours programs; describes methods of analyzing the effectiveness of current part-time programs; and provides clear advice on implementation of a balanced hours program. Appendices include a model balanced hours policy, an attrition cost worksheet, and a checklist for attorneys considering a balanced hours schedule.
