Employee Assistance Program

 

  

This benefit is available to all active County employees and their families.

The County of Tulare has contracted with Anthem Blue Cross to provide the Employee Assistance Program for calendar years 2013 and 2014.   An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential service designed to help employees and their families identify, assess and resolve issues that may be affecting their personal life and/or job performance.  The EAP is available to the employee and/or anyone in the employee’s immediate family who is living in the employee’s home.   The full cost of the services is paid by the County of Tulare.  The EAP also offers wellness education seminars that are designed to target specific problems or issues.
