Union County offers an extensive package of benefits. County employees enjoy comprehensive insurance plans including medical, prescription, dental, vision and life as well as retirement, flexible spending accounts, paid leave, tuition reimbursement, among many other benefits.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential service provided at no cost to the employees of Union County and their family members.
EAP provides certified counselors who administer assessment and brief therapy to employees who want help with a variety of personal and work-related issues such as stress, parenting concerns, grief, alcohol/drug use, family problems, financial concerns and work-related problems. If additional treatment is needed, the EAP counselor can recommend further treatment options.
Our EAP counselors are masters-level clinicians who are Certified Employee Assistance Professionals. Many hold additional licenses or certifications including: Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). The counselors adhere to strict legal guidelines regarding disclosure of program participation.
EAP counselors are available to help employees understand how their insurance coverage can be applied to additional counseling/treatment.
