Confidentiality and Privacy

With the allowance of certain exceptions described below, an EAP is a strictly confidential and private service. This ensures employees can seek support for their challenges without disclosing them to their employer.

It is important to know there are exceptions in which Psychologists and Counsellors will exercise their duty to waive confidentiality. This can occur when:

 1. The information is subpoenaed (officially requested) by a court of law 

2. Failure to disclose certain information would place them or another person at serious risk of harm

 3. Prior approval has been obtained to provide a written report to another professional or agency

 It is important as employers and leaders, to encourage staff to make use of the EAP if needed, and reassure staff that the EAP is a safe, professional and confidential service available to help them through their challenges. If a manager directly refers a staff member for EAP services, the manager will not be updated with the employees progress. 

If an organisation engages Illuminate Minds for corporate consultation, such as coaching, this changes the confidentiality slightly. Corporate Consultation has confidentiality limitations in that the referrer will be provided an overview of the services being delivered and progress reports throughout.
