Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates:

Making Life Easier and the Employee Assistance Program

Both Making Life Easier and the Employee Assistance Program continue to be available to employees during the coronavirus response. Counselors are meeting via telehealth to promote social distancing.

We offer comprehensive programs and services that help our employees, and their families, to be healthy and safe.

Below is information about the Employee Assistance Program and Making Life Easier services. For information about differences between the programs, view the Frequently Asked Questions.

Currently the Employee Assistance Program is experiencing longer than usual wait times to meet with an EAP Counselor. Urgent calls will be addressed immediately, and then in the order they are received. We are working to resolve this issue, and appreciate your patience.
