Description:

True or false: You can be sued for actions taken by an employee after he or she is dropped off at home following a company holiday party.
True. (Ugh.)

Workplace holiday parties may be a good way to boost morale and show your employees how much your organization values them, but there are several legal pitfalls, like the one mentioned above, HR needs to watch for.

First and foremost, there are risks that come with serving alcohol at workplace holiday parties. HR and other business leaders must weigh this risk against concerns over people not showing up for the party if alcohol is barred.

While things can certainly go south at a workplace party even in the absence of cocktails, if you decide to serve alcohol you need to be extra sensitive to the potential risks of sexual harassment, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, or other claims if someone drinks too much and things go terribly wrong.

And there are a host of other questions to answer, too:

  • What about the choice of venue and theme? Could a Christmas be grounds for a religious discrimination lawsuit?
  • Does the party count as “hours worked” for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act?
  • Do you have to pay people overtime for attending a party? (That doesn’t seem very “merry and bright.”)
With Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, as well as parties to ring in the New Year, on the horizon, don’t delay in finding out how to ensure that your workplace holiday parties are safe, harassment-free, and legal.

Join us for practical answers on how to avoid a legal hangover in the aftermath of an office party. Our presenter, a skilled labor and employment attorney, will provide guidelines and tips on how to ensure an enjoyable, morale-boosting event that does not result in litigation.

You’ll learn:
  • Employee handbook rules to emphasize before the workplace holiday party
  • How to throw a workplace holiday party that doesn’t violate religious discrimination laws, ignore religious or medical needs, or fail to provide access to disabled guests
  • How to reduce the risk of sexual harassment and nip inappropriate behavior in the bud
  • The pros and cons of serving alcohol at a company function
  • Effective ways to limit alcohol consumption and assist inebriated guests in getting home
  • Why you need someone officially “in charge” of the party—and what this person’s responsibilities are
Register now to learn how to reduce your risk of employee missteps, and potential lawsuits, while hosting an enjoyable, morale-boosting workplace holiday party.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
