Helping You Know Your Employment Rights

Tribal Employment Rights Office

The Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) was established to protect and promote the employment rights and opportunities of both Community members and other Members of Indian Tribes. Funded by both EEOC and tribal funds, TERO works closely with Community and Non-community employers located on the Gila River Indian Community to insure that employment opportunities are continuously made available to Community members and members of other Tribes under Title 12. TERO conducts ongoing monitoring and compliance checks of employers and contractors.
