I am writing to request your permission to research the potential benefits of employers providing (EAP) Employee assistance programs for employees with disabilities in efforts to make them aware and not feel alienated. The program would also help increase productivity on the job by taking advantage of the programs to provide care with decreasing the absentee rate of the employee. The program would provide options to the employee in performing their jobs. There are multiple avenues that can be explored as for video chatting, a accommodating schedule for work and even working from home. There would be short training inserts to educate employees on the laws and services that are provided. By providing training this would bridge the gap of unawareness providing a healthy and friendly work atmosphere. Assistance could be provided with co-pays that are associated with health insurance. By providing a healthy work environment and helping with adequate healthcare for illnesses this could increase the productivity on the job. Overall assisting with illness we’ll help increase productivity by having employees at work and also helping the health of employees at the same time. Information will be gathered from the Americans with Disability Act website, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other sources from research in the online library
