The Employee Assistance Program is a joint program of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, The Newfoundland Association of Public Employees, and the Public Sector Managers' Association.
The purpose of the Program is to provide any employees in the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Service with an opportunity to obtain help for personal problems that are either affecting, or have the potential to affect, work performance. Problems may be marital, family, financial, emotional or those associated with substance abuse, or gambling.
Recognizing that a problem exists, an employee may seek assistance on their own initiative by contacting one of the Co-ordinators of the Employee Assistance Program. If work performance has deteriorated, the supervisor may make the referral on behalf of the employee, if the employee agrees to participate. The Co-ordinator will discuss with the employee, the nature of the problem, and provide immediate counselling if necessary, and/or refer the person to an outside helping agency.
