The Employment Round Tables
How it all started
The Employment Round Tables were begun in 1983 in partnership with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The Employment Round Tables are composed of volunteers from businesses, public and private employers, and from labor organizations. Their purpose is to create an awareness of the problems of discrimination, harassment and retaliation in employment. The goal of the Employment Round Tables is to reduce discrimination and promote equal opportunity.
The objective of the Employment Round Tables are to:
- Enhance communications between the Department and the public.
- Provide forums that promote education, advocacy and understanding of anti-discrimination laws and practices.
- Initiate cooperative programs that preserve civil rights and expand equal opportunity in employment.
The Employment Round Tables provide:
- Seminars and conferences on discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in employment.
- Information on DFEH activities.
- Counseling and other assistance to small employers
- Special projects in response to public educational needs.
- Technical advice and input to DFEH on its procedures.
