    At BOEM, we understand the ongoing balancing act between work life and home life. We understand that a child's soccer practice is as valuable as a conference call, that a birthday comes once a year, and that when the work day ends, your life begins.

    For this reason, BOEM offers the following family-friendly employee benefits and services, as does the rest of the Federal Government.

    Flexible Work Schedule. In each office, BOEM employees and supervisor create a work schedule that best meets the needs of both the employee and the organization.

    Generous Family Leave. BOEM employees may attend to planned and unexpected family situations--such as childbirth and adoption, family care, and bereavement--through paid leave under the Friendly Family Leave Act and unpaid leave under the Family Medical Leave Act.

    Leave Transfer Program. BOEM employees may donate sick leave to co-workers who have medical or family emergencies and have exhausted their leave time.

    Employee Assistant Program. BOEM employees and their immediate family members may take advantage of the Department of the Interior's Employee Assistant Program (EAP). The voluntary EAP provides free and confidential short-term counseling and referral services for issues affecting employees' mental and emotional well0-being, such as alcohol and other substance abuse, stress, grief, family problems and psychological disorders.

    Health and Wellness Program. At some locations, employees have access to discounted fitness facilities and group exercise and health education programs.
