Make Your Holiday Parties Fun and Lawsuit Free

Friday, December 6, 2013

The holiday season is upon us.  It is the biggest season for office parties.  These parties give rise to the most law suits filed against an employer.  Today I read a great article from “Law 360” (subscription required) that provides an employer with great advice that allows a holiday party to still be enjoyable while at the same time reducing the of the party turning a legal nightmare.  The article lists five tips for employers: 1. Keep Alcohol Consumption Down, 2. Pick the Right Time and Location, 3. Don’t Make It Mandatory to Attend, 4. Ask Managers to Watch for Trouble, and 5. Remind Employees that Work Place Rules Still Apply.
