(2) What is the breakdown of the total number of employees who accessed an Employee Assistance Scheme by ACTPS classification or equivalent in relation to each financial year in part (1).

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The data provided in this response refers to the use by ACT Public Service employees and their families of the Employee Assistance Schemes. Small agencies and directorates have been identified as an Agency or Directorate.

In addition, the term “ACT Legislative Assembly (Executive)” refers to the Ministers’ staff within the ACT Executive and “ACT Legislative Assembly (Non-Executive)” refers to all other ACT staff working within the ACT Legislative Assembly.

When reviewing the number of staff accessing EAP services it is important to take into account the fact that employment numbers differ significantly across directorates.

(1) (a) 1 July 2007 – 30 June 2008

Minimal statistical data history is available from service providers, directorates and agencies on ACT Government employees accessing confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services during this period.
