There may come a time during your employment with NYIT when an outside situation, including family difficulties, poor health, substance abuse, or emotional disturbance, may interfere with your ability to do your job. Therefore, we have established an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to assist you and your family in getting the help you may need.

The EAP is a confidential assessment, counseling, and referral service designed to assist employees and their families with personal problems. NYIT provides EAP services through UnitedHealthcare and The Standard. The EAP is staffed by professional counselors who are experienced in assisting people with a wide range of personal problems. Counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to talk, offer short-term counseling and, if necessary, provide you with a referral for continued or specialized care.

UnitedHealthcare medical plan participants can call the EAP toll-free number, provided by UnitedHealthcare, at 888.887.4114. Non-UnitedHealthcare participants may be eligible to contact The Standard, at 888.293.6948.
