EAPs and the law
Your business needs to comply with UK employment law and to meet its ‘duty of care’ as an employer. Implementing a tailored Private Therapy Clinic Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) can help you achieve compliance, and reduce the risk of litigation.
What does your ‘duty of care’ entail?
In 1992, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations outlined an organisation’s ‘duty of care’ relating to the wellbeing of staff in the workplace. Under this legislation, stress is regarded as an occupational hazard that must be dealt with. The regulations indicate that employers are now accountable for assessing the nature and scale of both mental stresses and physical risks to health in the workplace.
Putting an EAP in place demonstrates your commitment to maintaining the mental wellbeing of your employees. It is also worth considering that the absence of any form of employee assistance programme or counselling may strengthen an applicant’s case in an employment tribunal or civil action, where an employer’s ‘duty of care’ is called into question.
Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
On 3 November 2004, the HSE launched new management standards and tools designed to help businesses and their employees manage the issue of work-related stress and minimise its impact on their organisation. This builds on the HSE’s recent guidance for managers on improving and maintaining employee health and wellbeing.
