The panel reviews the critical role of the supervisor working with EAPs and the broad problem areas that EAPs help employees and workplaces to address.

    • Letter from A. J. "Sully" Sullivan to Cal Kellner - Re: San Francisco ALMACA Chapter History

      Sullivan, Adolph J. (1978-01-23)
      You asked that I put in writing some history of the formation of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of ALMACA. It is a pleasure to do this, especially in view of the active and growing group that has emerged from those early efforts.
    • The Role of the United States Government in Alcoholism: The Federal Interagency Committee

      Masi, Dale A. (1978-06)
      This report was presented by Dr. Dale Masi at the International Council on Alcohol and Addictions and the Swiss Institute for the Prevention of Alcoholism in Zurich, Switzerland. The report describes legislation passed by the U.S. 91st Congress to prevent and respond to problems associated with alcohol use and abuse in the workplace. This legislation specifically provided for 1) federal assistance to states through a system of formula grant monies, and 2) the establishment of the National Advisory Council on Alcoholism, and 3) the initiation of alcohol programs for all federal employees. This legislation paved the way for present-day EAPs in the United States.

    • The Employee Assistance Program: Updated for the 1980's

      Wrich, James T. (Hazelden Publishing, 1980)
      Jim Wrich spells out how the concept of faltering job performance can be an effective tool in identifying and reaching any employee in need of help. By using the supervisor in his role of work evaluator rather than diagnostician and by offering help to all employees whose work performance is impaired, the Employee Assistance Program relieves the stigma of emotionally laden labels and articulates a proven methodology for aiding the worker and his family.
    • The Impact of Federal Sector Unions on Supervisors' Use of Personnel Policies

      Beyer, Janice M.; Trice, Harrison Miller, 1920-; Hunt, Richard E. (1980-01-01)
      This study investigates whether supervisors' use of management-initiated policies - in this case, alcoholism and EEO policies - is related to the presence of a union, the power of any union present (measured, among other ways, by certain bargaining outcomes), and the supervisors' awareness of the union's position on the policies in question. An analysis of interview data from supervisors in seventy-one federal installations, and from both national and local union officials, indicates that the supervisors' awareness of a union's position on the policies was positively related to use of both policies, as were certain aspects of union power. The presence of a union was also associated with greater use of the alcoholism policy, but not of the EEO policy. In addition, the authors analyze the reasons for the various compromises that occur in the use of each policy.

      Kirkland, Lane (1981)
      Alcoholism and its accompanying affect upon family life, the community, the workplace and the individual is a problem of major national concern. It is one which the AFL-CIO has recognized for many years. Our Department of Community Services has been actively engaged in programs involving alcoholism since the AFL and CIO merged in 1955.

      Delaney, Thomas J., Jr. (1981)
      The 10th Annual Meeting of the Association of Labor-Management Administrators and Consultants on Alcoholism is a significant event in the history of the occupational alcoholism movement. It signals that the men and women working in our field have been able to sustain a commitment to provide mutual support and education during a period of growth of the profession. Since growth always signifies change, the commitment of the field to its professional organization demonstrates that different philosophies will strengthen ALMACA.
