DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - The Dunn County Commission has decided to give county employees access to counseling programs that would help them deal with personal problems such as grieving, legal and financial issues.
The County Commission has approved funding to try out an employee assistance program for one year at a cost of $3,000 for the county's 99 employees.
Commissioner Donna Scott says the western North Dakota county can try the program for one year to see if employees use the counseling. She says the commission can decide after a year whether to keep the program.
Officials say the counseling program recognizes that employees can have problems in their personal lives that affect their work.
