Body

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION

Recommendation

Approve adding Baldwin County Emergency Communication District to the County's Employee Assistance Program as a separate division.

End

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background:  In an effort to provide Baldwin County Emergency Communication District's telecommunicators the benefit of having an Employee Assistance Plan (EAP), the Director has made a request to be added as a separate division under the County's Employee Assistance Program with Behavioral Health Systems.  Behavioral Health Systems will not contract with an entity with less than 500 employees.  Having access to an EAP program is an important component in helping the telecommunicators obtain the help needed due to critical situations.  Behavioral Health Systems agreed to add the separate division and the Baldwin County Emergency Communication District would be billed directly, at no cost to the County.
