For community legal centre workers


Employee Assistance Program

Workers in the community legal centre sector in NSW are able to access the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for free counselling and wellbeing support.

All sector employees are entitled to six free confidential counselling sessions for each issue or problem you encounter. For example, a death in your family and a problem at work are different 'issues', and you are entitled to six counselling sessions for each of these issues.
