Employee Assistance Program 24-Hour Hotline: 1-800-634-6433
Because every employee is important, the Sun Prairie Area School District is vitally concerned with the health and well-being of each employee and his/her family. Should the need arise, you may want to take advantage of the Employee Assistant Program (EAP). It does not guarantee a cure-all for personal problems, but it provides a good start at resolving many of them.
What is EAP?
Simply put, it is assistance for employees. This free, voluntary program provides confidential assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives or job performance.
How Does it Work?
The request for help may be initiated by the employee or the family. Simply call the confidential 24-hour helpline and the counselor will work with you on finding the most appropriate program or agency to work with you. An appointment can be arranged or options can be explained to you about what help is available.
Who May Use EAP?
All employees of the Sun Prairie Area School District and their immediate family members may use the program. Employees are encouraged to call the confidential 24-hour helpline.
Maintenance of confidentiality, strictly followed within the specified guidelines, is one of the most important aspects of the EAP. Asserting and maintaining the confidentiality of an employee’s participation in the program is thus one of the most important responsibilities of ALL involved.
When referrals to outside resources are necessary, the employee’s regular health insurance and/or other benefits will be contacted for approval. If services that are not covered by insurance are necessary, the counselor will try to help the employee minimize the cost by making the referral to the most appropriate agency.
It is our sincere hope this program will prove to be of great benefit to the employee, his or her family and our school district. The program will help us retain, through early assistance, our most valuable resource — a healthy and productive employee.
