The employee assistance program, or EAP, is a counseling service for City of Milwaukee employees and their family who may be experiencing personal or work place problems. Everyone has problems from time to time. Usually, we work them out. But sometimes problems persist, becoming serious enough to affect us both off and on the job. At such times, an EAP may be able to help.
