Do you have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at work? Then you might have access to free legal help that you didn’t even know about!
Many employers offer their employees an EAP as an extra benefit. Many EAPs offer some legal help as part of the package. It could be as simple as articles on legal topics to free legal consultations to discounts on attorney fees.
Some EAPs offer articles on various subjects such as criminal law, immigration, and consumer law. They may also offer forms for specific states and might include various Power of Attorney forms and Wills.
If you find yourself in need of an attorney, many EAPS offer a free initial consultation with an attorney. If you decide to retain the attorney, they may offer a discount on the regular hourly rate.
Every EAP will offer different services, so it is advisable to check with your human resources department to see if you have an EAP and what services it offers. You might just find the help you need through your Employee Assistance Program.
