Welcome to the Website for the Sonoma County Employer Advisory Council

Sonoma County

Sonoma County EAC is a partnership between the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the business community. The membership represents a cross section of business and industry. The EAC is committed to assisting employers in conducting their business more effectively, providing information on employment related issues, and enhancing the partnership between EDD and the private sector.

Sonoma County is a member of the California Employer Advisory Council (CEAC), which is a nonprofit, statewide umbrella organization for over 50 Employer Advisory Councils throughout the state. The CEAC provides links between employers, EACs, the Employment Development Department and the U.S. Department of Labor. While Sonoma County 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.


Membership dues are $70.00 a year per company. This entitles any employees to attend seminars and events at a reduced fee. Sonoma County EAC offers bi-monthly breakfast meetings and a yearly half-day Labor Law Seminar in October.
