Early identification and referral to the Employee Assistance Program for employees with behavioral problems is important in maintaining a safe, productive and healthy workplace. Employees experiencing personal and/or family problems at home often exhibit behavioral or performance problems at work. When discussing workplace problems with the employee, managers and supervisors should inform the employee of the availability of the Employee Assistance Program and should notify EAP that they referred an employee of the program. Employee participation in EAP is voluntary and confidential.
The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity (OIDE) provides direction to the University community with regard to federal and state guidelines and legislation related to civil rights, equal employment, cultural diversity and affirmative action. They provide training and consultation to supervisors and staff, while conducting investigations of allegations of discriminations and sexual harassment.
The University Ombuds Office is an informal and confidential service available to Stony Brook students, staff, faculty and administrators to resolve complaints and evaluate options for positive action.
