Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

About the EAP

The Employee Assistance Program is a structured approach for helping employees and their families identify and resolve personal problems and concerns that may affect job performance. These problems and concerns may include emotional and psychiatric problems, alcohol and other drug related problems, marriage and family problems, financial and legal problems, interpersonal conflicts at work, stress, vocational issues—almost any personal concern.

Employee assistance professionals are specially trained and experienced at listening, asking the right questions, gathering the correct information, and helping you decide the best course of action to take to resolve the issue or difficulty you face.

Employee Assistance is available to all associates and their families.

A simple telephone call 614-692-2000 or E-mail to Drew Henderson is all it takes. EAP services are free and confidential.

Violence in the Workplace/Abuse

There's NO Excuse for Abuse!

This site offers Federal Government Employees and their dependents a place to find assistance if they are a victim, or know of a victim, of workplace violence or domestic abuse.  Ignoring a situation does not make it go away; instead, it usually results in an escalation of the problem.
