PURPOSEThe Office of Employee Assistance is the faculty/staff employee assistance program of Florida International University. The OEA provides free and confidential professional assistance to help employees and their immediate family members resolve personal problems that affect their personal lives or job performance.
Individuals who elect to use the service at their own initiative should contact OEA directly. An OEA clinician will work with the person to assist in identifying the problems, causes and strategies for resolution. When appropriate, the OEA professional will assist the individual to obtain treatment, counseling, or community services when required services are beyond the scope of OEA. All information obtained by the clinician is privileged information except for legal limits on confidentiality. Questions and concerns about limits of confidentiality will be fully explained by OEA professional staff.
