Wichita TERO (Tribal Employment Rights Office)

Opening: TERO Director  

 

TERO Job Fair 4.24.17

 Anadarko area students participate in the TERO Job Fair on April 24, 2017.

TERO monitors and enforces The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes TERO Ordinance to ensure employment rights are protected. Enforcement of employment rights is funded through the

*Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (E.E.O.C.).

The primary purpose of the TERO program is to enforce tribally enacted Indian Preference law to insure that Indian/Alaska Native people gain their rightful share to employment, training, contracting, subcontracting, and business opportunities on and near reservations and native villages.

The core characteristics of the program provide additional and valuable insights into why the law and enforcement program are needed and applied. The following are three vital characteristics of TERO.

  1. TERO is a true act of self-determination. The decision to enact a Tribal employment rights ordinance is based on each individual tribe's needs and priorities.
  2. TERO programs are action orientated. TERO offices are a no-nonsense, hands-on, result- orientated and process driven compliance programs.
    1. TEROs are systematically structured programs. Key elements of the structure include:

 

 

***We currently do not have a compliance plan for TERO.


 

TERO stands for Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance or Office. TERO Ordinances require that all employers who are engaged in operating a business on reservations give preference to qualified Indians in all aspects of employment, contracting and other business activities. TERO Offices were established and empowered to monitor and enforce the requirements of the tribal employment rights ordinance.

What is the purpose of the TERO program?

The primary purpose of the TERO program is to enforce tribally enacted Indian Preference law to insure that Indian/Alaska Native people gain their rightful share to employment, training, contracting, subcontracting, and business opportunities on and near reservations and Native villages.

 

Why was the TERO Ordinance enacted?

  • To address the deplorable rate of poverty, unemployment and underemployment that exists among native people living on reservations.
  • To eliminate discriminatory and other historical barriers tribal members face while seeking employment and business opportunities on or near reservations.
  • To ensure that tribal members receive their rightful entitlements as intended and required under the Tribal and federal Indian preference employment law.
