The University of Nevada, Reno, is committed to maintaining a work environment that is free from violence, threats of violence, harassment, intimidation, and other disruptive behavior. Violence, threats, harassment, intimidation, and other acts of aggression and disruptive behavior in the workplace will not be tolerated.
Because personal issues are frequently the cause of workplace violence incidents, employees experiencing threats of violence from a domestic partner or other non-work relationship are encouraged to report this to their chain of command as well as to University Police Services.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides help to university employees and their families with relationship problems. This help is available 24 hours per day by calling (877) 234-5151 or you may contact a representative online at Life Works (user ID is NSHE and the password is EAP).
This assistance is provided by off-campus providers and is completely confidential. Administrative leave may be granted for an initial visit to the agency. The staff at EAP are trained to evaluate and refer individuals to the appropriate resources. All of the health insurance plans include coverage for mental health treatment programs. Coverage differs, so employees should contact their health provider to find out what specific benefits are offered.
