Employee Assistance Program
Employer ID: Baltimore
Baltimore County recognizes that the success of all County programs depends upon the well-being and commitment of County employees. In order to support a healthy and productive workplace, an integrated employee assistance and work–life support program has been developed. These services have been designed to meet employee needs and to conform to the highest standards of quality.
EAP provides phone consultation or face-to-face counseling (up to 10 visits with a local EAP provider per issue, per year) for every household member of a County employee. There is no charge for EAP services, and these services are not tied to your selection of a County health plan. If EAP is not the best setting for your care, you will be assisted with obtaining managed mental health benefits, available to you through your County-sponsored health plan.
The County recognizes that the ability of its employees to be productive is impacted by life concerns that can often interfere with work. Therefore, the County provides work–life support services for its employees through the EAP program.
