Employee Assistance Provider
The Department of Health is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all employees at work. In recognising that employees will from time to time experience problems which may or may not be work related, but can affect well being and work performance, the Department provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
An EAP is a confidential counselling service provided free of charge to all employees, their partners and dependents. Whilst the Department will meet the cost of up to three counselling sessions, participation in the EAP is voluntary.
There is currently no preferred provider arrangement in place for the Department of Health, however compliance with the Department of Treasury and Finance’s Human Resource Services Common Use Contract is mandatory.
Providers who have previously had preferred provider status with the Department and are part of the Common Use Contract include :
Alternatively, further information about EAP Providers can be obtained from the Human Resources Branch or via https://ws.gem.wa.gov.au/GEM/supplier/contracts/documents/Contractor_Profiles_39104_Cat6_EAP.pdf.
A copy of the updated Employee Assistance program Policy is attached for your information.
