Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
- Supervisors should look at the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as a tool to keep personal issues from spilling over into the workplace or unduly affecting employee behavior and performance.
- Consider an EAP referral when an employee’s performance is unacceptable and there are clear indications that personal factors are involved. Some signs to watch out for:
- Personality changes
- Work behavior changes
- Negative co-worker relations
- Physical changes
- Out of the office/away from desk
- High accident rate
- Drinking/drug use, etc.
- An employee can engage with the EAP through self-referral, informal referral, or formal management referral.
Alternate/Flexible Work Schedules
- Employees have the option for alternate work schedules or flex time.
- An alternate work schedule may allow for a better balance of work life and home life; however, it must also result in a continuation of high quality service to customers.
- UC Irvine offers a variety of resources to help employees navigate parenthood, including classes for expecting parents, new parents and parents of young children.
- A lactation station is available for the campus community, where nursing mothers can breastfeed or pump for their child in a quiet, comfortable, secure room.
