The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a free and confidential service for employees and their household dependents. EAP provides private assessment, brief counseling and/or referrals for additional services to assist with personal and/or work-related problems that could potentially impact job performance, health, mental and emotional well-being. Such concerns, amongst others, may include stress, financial issues, legal issues, family problems, office conflicts, and alcohol or substance abuse. EAP also works with supervisors and managers to provide proactive planning for, and intervention in, situations such as organizational changes and in response to traumatic events.
