For state employees:

WAC 292-110-010 2.(a).(iv) permits the use of state resources, including an employee’s time, to access the employee assistance program. WAC 357-31-325 provides that agencies grant leave with pay for employees to receive assessment from the EAP. Agency policies, Labor Agreements, and non-represented employee rules may vary about accounting for time away from the workplace, so check with human resource office or labor representative. Employees may use accrued personal time such as vacation or sick leave if they choose not to involve their supervisor or HR.

For non-state employees:

Check with your human resources office, agency policies, Labor Agreements, or labor representative about the rules related to use of EAP on work time. Employees may use accrued personal time such as vacation or sick leave to use EAP if they choose not to involve their supervisor or HR.
