Oregon Employer Council
The Oregon Employer Council is 30 year-old nonprofit corporation dedicated to fostering a partnership between Oregon employers and the Oregon Employment Department. Teams of volunteer employer representatives serve as advisors to the Oregon Employment Department enabling Oregon employers and the Employment Department to identify and address local, regional, state and national workforce challenges.
 
As a member, you have a voice and can make a difference in local employment and training issues. Our members are the link between business, education, government, and the workforce.
 
Why should you be interested in learning about the Employment Department and the United States Department of Labor?  The most important reason is that you pay for employment services with your FUTA taxes.
 
Oregon Employer Council chapters sponsor low cost educational events for employers. You can register for OEC events by mail, telephone, and E-Mail. An annual state conference welcomes CEO´s, human resource professionals and business owners/managers from all over the Northwest.
 
Join your peers and become a member of the Oregon Employer Council. The only condition of eligibility for membership is to be an Oregon employer. Make sure you are taking full advantage of all the services you have paid for with your FUTA tax.
