The Employment Round Table of Southern California has been a vital partner to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing for nearly three decades. The Department values collaboration with the Employment Round Table to provide quality educational programs for human resources and legal professionals. Preventing workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation is good for both civil rights enforcement and business prosperity.
