TERO Report: TERO fees; the positive impact TERO fees can have on the tribal work force and economy


February 25, 2020

The Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) serves a vital role in the overall employment rate of EBCI enrolled Tribal members by providing Indian preference in employment and contracting with the Tribe and its entities. Indian preference is a unique opportunity and exercise of EBCI inherent sovereignty to put Cherokee people first in Cherokee’s economy.

In the late 1970’s, many Native American Tribes across the nation adopted Tribal Employment Rights Ordinances that required employers on Indian reservations to give qualified Indians preference in employment and contracting from Tribal business. The primary goals of these ordinances was to eliminate discrimination against enrolled members while enhancing employment opportunities. By developing strong enforcement agencies, TERO can help alleviate patterns of poverty and unemployment and ensure Indian people receive their rightful entitlements under both Federal and Tribal employment law.
