Employee Assistance Program
The Buffalo State College Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential information, assessment, and referral service. EAP is designed to help employees cope with personal issues that negatively affect their lives and may intrude upon their jobs such as emotional stress, family disintegration, financial or legal difficulties, alcoholism or drug abuse, and marital disruption. These issues not only harm an employee’s personal life, but also impair workplace productivity. EAP was formed with the knowledge that such problems can be addressed and treated with appropriate and relevant help.
