Mission Statement

The WIEEAC is composed of employer volunteers representing a cross-section of business and industry. The Employer Advisory Council (EAC) was developed to promote a stronger partnership between the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the business community. Its commitment or mission 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. The WIEEAC is a member of the California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC). Member EACs throughout the state comprise the CEAC.

About Us

The WIEEAC is a cross-section of employer volunteers from businesses and organizations throughout the west Inland Empire including Ontario, Upland, Chino, Chino Hills, Montclair, Rancho Cucamonga, and Alta Loma.. We help educate employers about relevant employment issues and related legal concerns.

We partner with EDD to increase cooperation and communication between EDD and the private sector. We also assist employers in their efforts to give back to their communities by advocating local workforce development efforts, supporting veterans’ and other employment and educationally focused not-for-profit groups, and providing scholarships.

As a not-for-profit employer advocacy group, we present an alternative to large, faceless associations. We offer monthly breakfast meetings, luncheons, or all day seminars where well-respected attorneys and other human resource experts provide “nuts and bolts” information. We are large enough to attract great speakers, yet small enough to allow you to ask direct questions during the presentation. We understand your time is valuable and strive to justify your investment.

The WIEEAC is run by volunteers from the local employer community who represent a wide variety of industries. Learn more about our Board of Directors, click here.
