Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance

2021-06-21T17:13:36-07:00

Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance or TERO was initiated in 1992 by the Bishop Tribal Council. The role of TERO is to address the high rate of poverty, unemployment and underemployment that exist among Native people living on or near reservations. In addition, the ordinance ensures the elimination of discriminatory and other historical barriers tribal members face while seeking employment and business opportunities on reservations. TERO ensures the rights of Tribal members during all phases of employment, from interviews to hiring. In addition, TERO ensures Indian Preference, and Fair Employment practices on the Bishop Reservation are adhered to by all contractors and subcontractors who do work on the Reservation.

Trainings and Resources Include

  • Job specific and safety classes, workshops and training
  • Employee preparation classes, such as resume and interviewing strategies
  • Referral to counseling services
  • Supportive services for Tribal members who are recently hired
  • Barrier removal strategies for alliances and collaboration between agencies
  • Any other necessary resource for Indian employee empowerment
  • Dispute resolution
  • Indian-owned business development

Wellness Centers

Our Wellness Centers are rooted in the Strengths Model, which is an evidence-based practice that utilizes each person’s unique talents, skills, knowledge, interests, and other resources to help them move beyond the formal mental health system and achieve meaningful life goals. We recognize that mental health providers have a tremendous impact on the people we serve and that every interaction provides the opportunity to either build up or tear down a person’s hope and belief in their ability to achieve their dreams. Our goal is to provide services in a manner that lifts people up and communicates a belief that life beyond the mental health system is possible.
