English term or phrase: balanced employment contracts
"balanced employment contracts were redesigned".

This is US english.

I have very little context other than this follows a reorganization of the management team.

Urgent.

Explanation:
According to Termium

I am not sure whether balanced is taken in the sense of équitable or équilibré. You be the judge.

I must say when I asked the client, they did not know either.
All the answers I got, including the ones e-mailed directly to me, were useful, but they were all different. So it is difficult to make a choice. I hope I'm being fair. Thank you everybody.

des contrats de travail raisonnables


Explanation:
Not knowing the rest of the document, I can only assume that perhaps previous employment contracts were unfair and have therefore been redrawn. I propose the French equivalent of "fair employment contracts".

Equal opportunity


Explanation:
If this is a US contract, it probably refers to Balanced Employment which reflects local demographics. In this case the translation would be "les contrats d'emploi équilibré ont été restructurés."

It could also represent Equal Opportunity. If this is true, then "balanced employment contracts were redesigned" should be translated "les contrats assurant l'égalité des chances ont été restructurés."
