Who We Are
In 1988, Gov. Henry Bellmon created the State Employee Assistance Program (EAP) within then Office of Personnel Management (OPM) by Executive Order; the Legislature made the OPM State EAP a statutory program in 1992.
The Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) Human Capital Management (HCM) State EAP, which is voluntary, provides assistance to state agencies in their management of employees whose personal problems may have a negative impact on job performance. The HCM State EAP also assists employees and their family members who are seeking corrective help with medical or mental health problems, including alcohol or drug abuse, and emotional, marital, familial, financial, or other personal problems.
Merit Rules governing the HCM State EAP are found at 530:10-21-1 through 10-21-9
