What is an Employee Assistance Program?

Employee assistance programs are typically offered by employers as a voluntary benefit to employees and their families. Some EAPs may be required by state or federal law, such as those that address substance abuse or domestic violence.

EAPs are confidential and provided at no cost to employees. Services may include assessment, short-term counseling, referral services, and follow-up. These are also sometimes called employee wellness programs.
