Sometimes an employee can experience problems on the job that are the result of things going on outside of the workplace. That may not always be the case, but sometimes it is. And when it is, it’s a private matter.
The UAW and Chrysler have developed a program to connect employees in need with resources that can help in a confidential manner.
It’s called the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). It’s part of your benefits package negotiated by the UAW.
EAP has helped a lot of people with problems ranging from substance abuse to family issues and mental illness. All active employees and their family members are eligible for this benefit.
You don’t have to know the exact diagnosis of the problem; you only have to know that it is negatively impacting your life and want to get help.
Your Employee Assistance Representative can assist you in taking those first steps. If you are not sure who your EAP Rep is, just click on the EAP Representatives List link in the column on the left side of this page. Reps are listed by facility.
Remember, the Employee Assistance Program is free, confidential, and has helped a lot of people.
Employees who elect not to contact the EAP Rep may contact the Chrysler National Hotline Managed Care Coordinator at 800.346.7651 (for represented employees) or 800.447.0166 (for non-represented employees).
