What is TERO?
TERO stands for Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance or Office. The Kenaitze Indian Tribe enacted TERO Ordinance 2017-01 to utilize tribal sovereignty to give preference to Tribal Members, Tribal Member’s spouses, and Alaska Native and American Indian people in employment, contracting and other business activities when qualifications are substantiated.
Goals of TERO
One of the goals established by the Tribe’s TERO Commission is to establish a pool of TERO applicants. From this pool, the TERO Manager can identify qualified applicants for employment opportunities. The TERO Manager may assist applicants with education and training so that more opportunities become available.
TERO also helps investigate and bring to the TERO Commission any potential discrimination problems that may occur.
