CERIDIAN'S EMPLOYEE ADVISORY RESOURCE (EAR) OFFERS SAFE RIDE HOME TO ITS CUSTOMERS' EMPLOYEES

 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Ceridian Employer Services announced today that its Employee Advisory Resource (EAR)(R) is offering a confidential cab fare reimbursement program for its customers' employees who choose to call a cab rather than drive while under the influence of alcohol. The program, SafeCab, will be offered during the holiday season, Thanksgiving through Jan. 2, 1994, to 350 of EAR's customers nationwide.
 "Ceridian Employer Services is committed to offering a broad array of products and services that help employers manage all facets of the employment relationship," said Patrick C. Sommers, president, Ceridian Employer Services. "The SafeCab program is one example of how we are working to help companies achieve more productive workdays."
 EAR is a 24-hour direct-access employee assistance program that helps employees and their families resolve problems of any type including, financial, legal, eldercare, child care, workplace issues, mental health, gambling and substance abuse. EAR currently serves more than one million employees and their families nationwide.
 Through SafeCab, employers refund cab fares for employees who make the responsible and wise decision to call a cab rather than drive while under the influence of alcohol. The administration fee for the program is $250 for companies with more than 250 employees and $150 for companies with less than 250 employees.
 "We've been providing this service to our parent company (Ceridian Corporation, formerly Control Data) for over ten years," said Tim Glaros, product manager, Ceridian Employer Services. "The decision to offer SafeCab externally is a direct result of requests from our customers."
 Employees who participate will send a cab fare receipt to EAR, along with a SafeCab voucher. EAR will then confidentially reimburse the employee with a check for the amount of the cab fare. Just as with all of EAR's programs, the employee's privacy is completely protected.
 Following the New Year, EAR will send participating companies an itemized listing of cab fares submitted and an invoice for the total of the cab fares reimbursed during the holiday SafeCab period.
 "This service exemplifies EAR's philosophy of addressing the problems of daily living that affect the average person. Problems are dealt with immediately by keeping both the process and access to our services as simple as possible," Glaros said.
 Ceridian Employer Services helps companies manage both the systems and human aspects of the employment relationship by providing tools that include payroll and tax filing services, human resources information management systems and employee assistance programs.
 Ceridian Corporation is a data services company that provides information management and employer services. Its businesses are Ceridian Employer Services, the Arbitron Company, and Computing Devices International.
