Work Life Balance

  • At Cahill we respect family and life balance, and accommodate individual situations.
  • 18 weeks' parental leave for primary caregivers, or up to 26 weeks maternity-related disability. Additionally, primary caregivers who return to the Firm after birth or adoption of a child will be given the option to work at a reduced load for up to 12 weeks for proportionate pay to ensure a smooth transition back to work after parental leave.
  • 4 weeks' parental leave for secondary caregivers.
  • Flexible work policy. The firm makes flexible work options that recognize the needs of a growing family available to lawyers returning from parental leave to facilitate the transition back to work. Lawyers returning from primary or secondary caregiver leave may opt to work remotely, work on a reduced hours schedule, or request extended unpaid leave from the firm. Additionally, to support lawyers who want to strike a different balance in their lives, whether on account of family or other circumstances, alternative work arrangements outside of these options will be considered by the firm on a case-by-case basis.
  • We offer a "Mothers' Room" for nursing mothers.
  • Emergency child care from a trusted name in daycare, located nearby the office.
