The mission of the Nez Perce Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) Compliance Program is to protect and assert Indian employment and contracting rights for the economic, social and cultural prosperity of the Nez Perce Reservation communities.
Through enforcement of the tribal law TERO hopes to reduce joblessness and raise the standard of living for all enrolled tribal members.
The Nez Perce Tribe must implement a comprehensive compliance and enforcement strategy that includes:
Laws and guidelines that impose specific requirements to provide Indian Preference in recruiting, hiring, training and promotions.
A monitoring system that guarantees compliance with TERO provisions.
An enforcement system that imposes fines and other sanctions for failure to comply with Indian Preference requirements.
Participation with the Pacific North-West TERO Region and the National Council for Tribal Employment Rights (CTER) to ensure that the Nez Perce TERO Compliance Program is kept updated on TERO issues.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
The Nez Perce TERO Compliance Program is a tribally established and operating Indian Preference enforcement and compliance program which insures that Indians gain their rightful share of employment, training, business and all other economic opportunities on or near the Nez Perce Reservation.
To provide this service the TERO Program collects a fee, negotiates compliance plans, monitors construction sites for compliance, maintains a skills bank and hiring hall, and dispatches qualified Indian workers from the TERO Hiring Hall.
