Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Committee
REPORT OF THE EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Jerry Dee Item 11(d)
Sister Lina Ruel and I participated in a conference call on May 4th regarding the Program Evaluation of the Employer’s EAP.
Our committee met on May 15th to prepare for the Joint EAP Advisory Committee meeting on May 16th. Per our discussions at the Advisory Committee meeting we expect a Draft report from the program evaluation team around the end of May. There will have to be discussions with the Agency’s Program Evaluation Section of the Draft report.
At the May15th committee meeting we also reviewed council’s decision not to accept the committee’s recommendation on Referral Agents. It was decided that a more explicit motion on referral agents was in order.
Recommendation no. 1
Whereas the discussion on referral agents at the EAP National Conference indicated a strong majority of speakers supported the use of referral agents; and
Whereas the referral agent training focuses on confidentiality and the referral aspect of the job; and
Whereas the referral agent training stresses that RAs are not to counsel individuals; and
Whereas the employee survey done during the EAP Program Evaluation shows a high level (60%) of comfort among employees using RAs as contact points.
Be it Resolved that UTE no longer object to our members, other than union representatives, becoming referral agents.
