Welcome to the Northcoast Employer’s Advisory Council Website!

The Northcoast EAC includes Humboldt and Del Norte counties.

The EAC was developed to promote a stronger partnership between the California EDD and the business community. The Northcoast EAC is composed of local employer volunteers representing a cross section of business and industry who join with EDD staff to assist the employer community to do business more effectively and efficiently. Its commitment is to provide information on employment-related issues, and to enhance the communication between EDD and the private sector.

The Northcoast EAC is one of more than 50 similar organizations throughout California, under the umbrella organization, the California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC).
