Description:
EAP professionals are often meeting with referred employees due to employment issues. Sometimes the employee may be struggling with issues related to the ADA. Other times it may be performance issues. But regardless of the issue there is typically an underlying employment law component. This presentation is designed to provide EAP professionals with a basic understanding of employment law so that they can better serve their clients.

Thank you, Pavillon, for partnering with NC EAPA to deliver this training!
