EEOC Launches New Webpage for Tribal Programs

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Office of Field Programs has launched a new webpage for its tribal programs, the federal agency announced today.

The webpage is a consolidated resource for information about the EEOC’s work with Native Americans and Alaska Natives. It contains background about the EEOC’s long-time partnership with Tribal Employment Rights Offices (TEROs), President Biden’s Tribal Consultation memorandum and the EEOC’s Tribal Consultation Process as well as other related information.

“One of the Commission’s priorities is to explore ways to collaborate and strengthen the EEOC’s relationship with Tribal nations,” said EEOC Chair Charlotte A. Burrows. “We have continued our partnership with the Tribal Employment Rights Offices and the Council for Tribal Employment Rights (CTER). To that end, we recently established an EEOC-TERO joint committee to strengthen our cooperation with TEROs and help achieve our common goals of addressing and eliminating unlawful employment discrimination.”

TEROs serve as an essential liaison between tribes and the EEOC. When an individual experiences employment discrimination on or near Tribal lands, TEROs are prepared to respond and refer cases to the EEOC when necessary. The EEOC also provides financial support for TEROs to protect the workplace rights of American Indians and Alaska Natives.

TEROs that are interested  in engaging with the EEOC can reach out to
