Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is directed to address productivity issues while helping employees identify and resolve personal concerns including, but not limited to, health, marital, family, financial, alcohol, drug, legal, emotional, stress, or other personal issues that may affect job performance. Employees may request a conference with Allison Moxley White, HR Director, to seek assistance in improving his/her job performance issues.
It shall be the intent of the Elkin City Schools to initiate, develop, implement and maintain a program for all of its employees that provides short-term referral and counseling services designed to assist in finding resources and solutions to personal issues or conduct that adversely affect employees' job performance.
The services of this Employee Assistance Program (EAP) are provided as an advisory service to the employee with the understanding that the services may be limited in duration and scope. The referral to other outside resources may include costs that will be the responsibility of the employee. We will provide business names and addresses in several services areas including: depression, family problems, marital discord, alcoholism, drug abuse, emotional disorders, gambling, and legal and financial difficulties.
Services shall be rendered on a referral basis. The employee and dependents are encouraged to use the self-referral voluntarily. Employees will neither have career opportunities jeopardized nor guaranteed by voluntary participation in the program. Additionally, EAP may assist in linking employees and his/her family with available community resources that provide necessary services, follow-up and a wide range of employee support services.
In addition, a supervisor may suggest or require employee utilization of the program as a condition of employment based on circumstances where an employee’s personal problems or conduct is adversely affecting the employee’s job performance. Where participation is mandatory, employees will be expected to comply with the directives of the school system and the EAP.
EAP services are rendered on a confidential basis except when disclosure to the school system is required by the law for safety reasons or when disclosure to the school system is included as a component of a mandatory referral matter.
Employees will use normal leave procedures when scheduling an EAP visit. Contact Mrs. Allison Moxley White, Human Resources Director, for more information or a consultation. A partial listing of Services available in Surry and Yadkin Counties include:
