CharityWatch's rating of National Women's Law Center (NWLC) also includes the financial activities of National Women's Law Center Fund, LLC (the LLC), which are consolidated in the NWLC audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. Both NWLC and the LLC are 501(c)(3) public charities. All inter-entity balances and significant transactions have been eliminated in the audit consolidation.
According to the NWLC website: "The Legal Network for Gender Equity and the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund are housed and administered by the National Women's Law Center Fund, LLC..."
CharityWatch separates the ratings for 501(c)(3) & 501(c)(4) organizations, even if their financial activities are included together in a consolidated audit, due to their differing treatments under the IRS tax code. For more information on this topic, please see our sections on Types of Non-Profits, Tax Status, and Treatment of Related Organizations, which can be found on the Our Process page.

According to the National Women's Law Center (NWLC) consolidated audit of June 30, 2020 (Note 7, Commitments and Contingencies, Collective Bargaining Agreement):
"On April 22, 2020, NWLC entered into a voluntary recognition process agreement with IFPTE Local 70/NPEU ('the Union') to recognize the Union as the collective bargaining representative of a group of NWLC's employees. The Bargaining Unit shall consist of the Employer's full-time (i.e., working at least 37.5 hours a week) and regular part-time (i.e., working at least 20 hours a week) employees, but excludes temporary employees (i.e., hired to work for less than 6 months); interns; and supervisors...managers, confidential employees and guards as defined by the National Labor Relations Act. The terms of the collective bargaining agreement with the Union are expected to be negotiated starting in 2021."
According to the National Women's Law Center consolidated audit of June 30, 2020 (Note 1 re: Subsequent Events):
"In preparing these [audited] consolidated financial statements, the Organization has evaluated events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure through January 14, 2021, the date the consolidated financial statements were available to be issued.
"The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States and around the world has caused business disruption due to mandatory lockdowns implemented in most states in order to slow down the spread of virus. The Organization's management has been monitoring the situation and implementing certain changes in its operations and upcoming events in order to mitigate the impact of this pandemic, including cancelling certain events and transitioning to virtual operations. While the disruption is currently expected to be temporary, there is considerable uncertainty around its duration, and the full financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time."
