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). To access this funding, the teacher must contact one of the EAP coordinators prior to seeing a counsellor.
Financial assistance is available through the Membership Assistance Fund. Each teacher is provided with $3,000 funding over the course of their career and must be an active NLTA member to be eligible for EAP Counselling Services. 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.
