Mission Statement

The Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) is responsible for the enforcement of the Yakama Nation's Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance, Title 71 of the Revised Yakama Code. The ordinance was created to guarantee and protect the unique employment rights of the Yakama Tribal Members and other Indians and to eradicate discrimination against Indian people. The TERO is required to enforce and inform all employers of their responsibility to comply with the ordinance. Employers and contractors, on or near the Yakama Nation, are acquired to give preference to Indians in hiring, promoting, training, temporary reductions in workforce, employment, and all other aspects of business and economic activity.
