New Employee Assistance Plan Carrier

Beginning August 1, 2014 LCC has partnered with FEI Behavioral Health, a well-known and respected provider of Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) and Work-Life services. FEI has a network of counselors, located all across the country, to provide these services to employees and family members when they are needed.

At one time or another, most of us will face a personal problem or family care issue that impacts the quality of our home life, relationships, health or ability to do our best at work. Most of the time, we can work these things out ourselves but, at times, we could benefit from some professional, objective guidance.

Help through our EAP and Work-Life Services is . . .

  • Professional—access to highly skilled, licensed, professional counselors and work-life specialists at no cost to you.
  • Convenient—Counselors with flexible hours are available near your home or workplace. Referrals for work-life services are also made to local resources.
  • Confidential—Your right to privacy is fully protected by law and company policy. No one at work or outside of work will know if you use the EAP and/or Work-Life Services.

Our new EAP provider offers services in the areas of:

Counseling Services

  • Work-Life Services
