Employee assistance delivered in many ways:

  • Face-to-face meetings with counselors (usually a set amount of meetings per individual)
  • Telephonic counseling (may or may not be a limited amount, depending on plan)
  • Access to online tools, with educational materials and programs to help through hard times


Employees and eligible family members can use a toll-free line as a single access point for EAP services. Trained counselors directly answer the phone to:

  • explain the EAP service;
  • arrange an “in person” assessment session; or
  • arrange an assessment for legal, financial or other work-life services;
  • provide an intervention over the telephone if indicated


Together, the EAP clinician and employee discuss the problem, its context and possible solutions. The EAP clinician also focuses on how the employee problems may interfere with work performance. Assessment includes:

  • A review of client rights, EAP services and confidentiality;
  • A review of presenting and related problems, taking into account the employee’s strengths, coping skills and motivation for change;
  • An evaluation of any high-risk factors, such as substance abuse, suicide potential and domestic violence;
  • A determination whether the employee’s concerns can be handled with short term counseling within the EAP or whether a referral beyond the EAP is indicated;
  • A solution-focused action plan that addresses the employee’s concerns and resolves issues that may disrupt work performance.


Short term counseling is most appropriate in situations related to “problems in living” (e.g. marital distress, parenting concerns, work related stress, interpersonal communication issues, mild anxiety, grief and loss). Usually this means a certain number of counseling sessions (based on plan).


If the problem cannot be resolved within the EAP, the EAP clinician refers the employee to the most appropriate and available resource for additional counseling, treatment or support.
