GBB-RA, Employee Assistance Program
About this Regulation
Last revised: November 21, 2011
To establish the responsibility and provide guidelines for the provision of a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) employees.
MCPS EAP is a workplace program designed to address personal as well as organizational problems that may interfere with optimal productivity. EAP provides assessment, counseling, and referral services to assist employees and their family members who have problems that can, and sometimes do, affect employee productivity. Included are those problems that are behavioral/medical in nature and may involve physical illness, mental and/or emotional disturbance, and chemical abuse or dependency involving alcohol and/or other drugs. In alignment with Board Policy GAA, Positive Work Environment in a Self-renewing Organization, EAP also is designated to help resolve organizational workplace issues that may impact employee well-being.
