Chaplain Assistance Program vs. Employee Care Program

A few things to consider before placing a chaplain on your staff as a company employee
The chaplain should always be an independent third party. There are many potential liability pitfalls that surround having a company employee as a chaplain. The company should never place itself in the position where the employees think that the chaplain could be compelled to break confidentially by a superior at the company. The company should view the chaplain as an independent contractor capable of being objective and private in the context of employee relationships. Other matters to consider include how the company will recruit, train, and manage the chaplain. Additionally, how will the company deal with continuing education training, and who will be there when the chaplain needs somebody?
