More Employer Services Than Traditional EAPs.
You and your front-line managers need the tools and services to help deal with important compliance
and liability issues. The 20% of your workforce who will experience life problems account for most involuntary
terminations. They file more workers’ compensation claims, are absent more often, and incur more disability costs.
We have redefined the EAP concept to include an entire menu of management focused solutions to help you
minimize costs and maximize productivity. Our EAP provides an important adjunct to your internal Human Resource staff.
Our Employer Services Include…
When complex employee issues arise, we provide direct access to our human resource consultants and clinicians. Managers may contact our clinical staff or our certified SPHRs (Senior Professionals in Human Resources) for counsel on virtually any human resource issue. SPHRs keep up-to-date on various employment matters such as FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Compensation.
The Administrative Referral is a formal process to address unacceptable employee performance and document remedial actions. When a manager is confronted with an employee performance problem, your Human Resource Department can refer the employee to a case manager for counseling. Employers who utilize this program find that most employees can be restored.

ESI is the only EAP to offer a complete curriculum of online compliance and management training programs. The curriculum includes thousands of course modules covering the full range of employee compliance issues, critical employment practice issues, and management training.

Most employers recognize the value of maintaining a drug-free workplace. Drug-Free Workplace compliance requires creating a Drug-Free Workplace policy, conducting drug and alcohol awareness training, and offering treatment options for employees abusing drugs in the workplace. Our consultants guide and assist in the development of a comprehensive program. The Omnibus Transportation Testing Act mandates alcohol and drug testing for “safety sensitive” employees in the transportation and pipeline industries. Our entire program is available to client organizations via the Internet, where employers have access to up-to-date policies and procedures. There are links to all necessary resources, including drug testing sites and substance abuse professionals. In addition, we include the online training programs needed to ensure that managers and supervisors meet federal training requirements.
