What is an Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
An Employee Assistance Program, or EAP, is an employer-paid, on-demand benefit that helps employees manage common life stressors and speed bumps.
Having an EAP is like having a team of specialists on call 24/7. This on-demand, confidential service can help with common life stressors, like loss or grief counseling, financial stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and more. EAP services are usually made available not only to the employee but also to the employee’s spouse, children and non-marital partner living in the same household. And, your EAP is 100% covered by your employer, so there’s no need to worry about the cost.
