What is an Employment Relations Consortium (ERC)?
An ERC is a number of local agencies (cities, counties and special districts), or school and community college districts, in a geographic area joining together for the purpose of securing quality employment relations training, consultation and informational services on a very economical basis. Currently there are over 650 cities, counties, school districts, community college districts, universities and other public sector agencies involved with Liebert Cassidy Whitmore's 32 consortiums.

What Kinds of Services are Provided in an ERC?
The three kinds of services covered by consortium membership are:
- Training workshops with reference material for all attendees
- Monthly newsletters
- Complimentary telephone consultation
Workshops are conducted at, or near, one of the member agencies. Attendees receive comprehensive reference material. Click here to see a list of available workshop topics.
ERC members are entitled to complimentary telephone consultation with attorneys in matters relating to employment and labor law questions.
Our workshop leaders are attorneys who are accomplished trainers and experienced in the subjects of their presentations. They are widely recognized for their ability to translate their legal expertise into everyday language, and are adept at demonstrating how you can apply important legal principles in on-the-job situations.
Establishing an ERC in Your Area
The annual per member agency fee is dependent upon the number of agencies and the number of workshops scheduled.
