Employee Assistance Program Frequently Asked Questions

What is an EAP?

An Employee Assistance Program or EAP is a workplace program that employees can participate in voluntarily. They typically offer confidential resources and counseling for everything from stress, grief, physiological disorders, addiction, and even anger management. EAPs help address issues before they impact an employee’s ability to work productively. They are there to make sure employees receive care before issues impact their job performance. 

EAPs were initially created to help employees with alcohol and drug abuse issues in the late 1930s. Over time, they’ve developed to support employees experiencing a wide range of issues. In our ever-changing work environments, with COVID-19 introducing growing issues such as anxiety, relationship issues, traumatic events, and other emergency response situations, effective programs needed to grow to address a wide range of topics. Employee assistance programs now even assist with financial and legal-related issues.
