A supervisor may refer an employee with job performance problems to the EAP for assistance. The goal of this referral is to assist the employee with any problems that may be impacting job performance. The employee may refuse this referral and this will not result in disciplinary action. It is always the employee’s right to refuse the EAP. Please fill out the form below and send it to the EAP. You may call the EAP to make an appointment for the employee or have the employee call and make the appointment.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) developed an online, self-study course for
supervisors to learn about the EAP. Supervisors will learn about the rationale
and procedure for utilizing EAP Supervisory Referrals. After completing the
training, supervisors will understand the purpose of the EAP, which employee
behaviors warrant a Supervisory Referral, and how best to present an employee
with a recommendation to visit the EAP. The training can be completed in about
20 minutes. Please contact the EAP if you have any questions.
