Traditionally, EAPs provide counseling services to help employees resolve their problems and return to full productivity. Studies show that 4 out of 5 employees are not performing at peak levels.

  • A reported 7 out of 10 people in the United States does not seek legal counsel because they are concerned about the costs. Additionally, it is estimated that 9 out of 10 people have unmet need for legal services in areas including: marriage, child, elder, civil and criminal areas.
  • Studies have shown that when many people are confronted with legal issues, most don’t know where to turn for professional help and many can not afford the services they so desperately need.
  • Many Employee Assistance Programs offer comprehensive legal solutions designed to help consumers by providing affordable legal resources to individuals and their families during a time of need.

EAP programs also offer members access to experienced external attorneys, mediators, and legal document assistants to help through a variety of challenges at various stages of their lives.
