OVERVIEW

MANAGEMENT REFERRALS

Mandatory management referrals of employees to the EAP are only made for statutorily required reasons (i.e., alcohol and/or drug offenses).  Mandatory referrals are typically made by an agency's human resources staff.

In some circumstances, it may be appropriate to remind an employee of the EAP benefit.  It is not recommended to try to diagnose the source of an employee's performance or conduct.  If a supervisor has a concern regarding an employee's performance or conduct, he or she should contact his or her agency's human resources staff.

CRITICAL INCIDENTS

A critical incident is a significant and distressing situation that impacts a work group (i.e., more than one employee) and can include situations such as natural disasters, line of duty death, suicide or layoff.

Critical incident intervention services can include education, briefings, debriefings, defusing, counseling and follow-up.

Critical incident services may be obtained by an appointing authority by contacting the Division of Human Resource Management's EAP Coordinator at (775) 684-0111 or cphughes@admin.nv.gov.
