Welcome to Solano and Napa County Employer Advisory Council (SNEAC).

Solano/Napa The Solano/Napa EAC is composed of employer volunteers representing a cross section of business and industry. The EAC was developed to promote a stronger partnership between the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the business community. Its commitment is to assist employers in conducting their business more effectively and efficiently, to provide information on employment related issues, and to enhance the communication between EDD and the private sector.

Solano/Napa Counties is a member of the California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC), which is a nonprofit, statewide umbrella organization for over 50 EACs throughout the state. The CEAC provides links between employers, EACs, the EDD and the U.S. Department of Labor. While Solano/Napa Counties EAC works with the business community at a local level, the CEAC represents all California EACs at the state level. It tackles state and federal employment issues, communicates with legislative representatives and gains grass root support on legislation.
