Employee Assistance Program
What About the Costs?
There are no costs to the teacher in seeking the assistance of an EAP coordinator. However, when a referral is arranged for a teacher, there are costs for counselling (averaging $100.00-$210.00 per hour).
Financial assistance is available through the Membership Assistance Fund. Each teacher has available a $3,000.00 lifetime funding limit. The program will cover private counselling up to a maximum of $40.00 per hour, and 12¢/km for travel to counselling sessions. The NLTA group insurance may also cover some additional expenses. Under the guidelines of the EAP, financial assistance is not available for family members.
