The purpose of the San Mateo County Employer Advisory Council (EAC) is to advise the EDD of means by which to provide effective employment services that are responsive to the needs of our local communities. The Council is also an avenue by which managers keep abreast of current trends and practices in the areas of personnel, administration, and management.
The EAC provides managers and others with ideas and information to profitably serve their organizations and themselves, and to strengthen their management competence and professional growth. At the chapter level, fellow members share knowledge and experience on a wide variety of issues.
Local EAC chapter meetings offer an opportunity to develop a broad base of personal contacts with other members concerned with similar issues. The result is an exchange of ideas of inestimable value.
In 2017, the San Mateo County EAC is sponsoring monthly seminars from highly regarded employment law and human resources experts. The schedule of events are as follows:
- Wednesday, January 25, 2017 – Labor Law Update 2017
