Unum adds EAP access

Unum has teamed up with Ceridian to add free access to the latter’s employee assistance programme (EAP) to its group income protection policies, under the name Unum LifeWorks.

Through the EAP, staff can access online and telephone legal and employment help, as well as create tailored legal documents to save on legal advice costs.

Employees can access telephone and face-to-face counselling, matched referrals for child- and eldercare, and online advice. Relevant literature and CDs can be sent to employees’ homes.

Wojciech Dochan, head of commercial marketing at Unum, said: “Unum LifeWorks will help employees and employers resolve potentially stressful situations.”
