An employee assistance programme, commonly known as an EAP, is an employee benefit scheme provided by an employer. EAP’s are often used to assist employees with any personal or professional problems which may have a detrimental impact upon their work performance or may affect their health. Employees can self refer, be referred by their management and in some cases nominate immediate family members to be referred. An EAP is generally a service that encompasses one or more of the following; counselling, advice on mental health issues or addictions, emotional support or a referral and follow up service.
All employers have a legal responsibility to ensure the health and wellbeing of their employees at work, including minimising the risk of stress or psychological illnesses to their employees. According to the Office of National Statistics, at any one time, one sixth of the working age of the population experience symptoms relating to mental health issues, such as stress and worry. If employee’s fail to receive the support they require, this can affect performance or even contribute to absenteeism.
