About Us

The San Luis Obispo EAC commitment is to assist local businesses by providing educational seminars about relevant employment issues and increase employer knowledge of EDD programs and services. In partnership with the Employment Development Department (EDD), the SLO EAC helps strengthen communication between EDD and employers. Our membership represents a cross section of employer volunteers from business and organizations throughout San Luis Obispo County. We help educate employers, especially small employers, about relevant employment issues and related legal concerns. We offer quarterly seminars where well-respected attorneys and other human resource experts provide “nuts and bolts” information and education.


Our local EAC and HRCC teamed up with Fisher Phillips to bring our local community a webinar regarding COVID-19. Below you will find the zoom meetings and webinar slides for your direct reference as we navigate through the impact of COVID-19.
