There are several types of referrals you can make as an employer. You can decide what type of referral to make, as well as how to communicate the referral to the employee. You can call or email our office with information about the referral, you can have the employee call and schedule, or both. The process is very easy!
1. Informal Referral
There are no job performance concerns at present. However, without supportive therapy services, the situation may result in a future performance breakdown. The employee makes the choice to follow through on the referral or not.
2. Formal Referral
A decline in work performance exists. The employee may already be receiving performance coaching. Ther referral is made as part of a corrective performance plan. There are expectations for the employee to attend therapy sessions as a tool to correct the performance problem. We can provide the employee with a letter for the employer stating session dates and level of cooperation, if desired.
3. Mandatory referral
Mandatory referrals are made to therapy when an employer is at the corrective action stage, where discipline or dismissal of the employee is likely, and there are mitigating circumstances that motivate company management to provide an opportunity for the employee to resolve the problem. Compliance with such a refferal is required. Failure to follow through with the therapy referral and treatment recommendations in full may be the basis for termination. Some reasons for mandatory referrals may include: violence or threats of violence in the workplace, domestic violence or harrassment, sexual harassment in the workplace, nation of origin discrimination, suicidal evaluation, or hostile work environment issues.
