Employee Assistance Program

A Joint Labor-Management program helping employees and their families make life less complicated
The Employee Assistance Program is a joint (EAP) labor-management program that benefits New York State employees by enhancing employee wellbeing, increasing productivity, and improving morale in the workplace. EAP is funded through the collective bargaining agreements between the State of New York and the public employee unions: CSEA, PEF, UUP, NYSCOPBA, GSEU, Council 82, DC-37, and PBANYS. The Office of Employee Relations contributes on behalf of management/confidential employees.

Find the EAP coordinator for your agency by clicking on the button below titled, “Find an EAP Coordinator.” If you prefer to contact an EAP coordinator from an agency other than your own, you may choose any EAP coordinator from the list of statewide EAP coordinators. The coordinator will meet with you in person or by phone to assess your situation, provide you with referrals to community resources, and follow up with you to see how you are doing and if you need any additional assistance.
