Recorded CD
About This Course:
Company parties can be a great opportunity for employers to boost employee morale and foster workplace camaraderie. Unfortunately, these same parties can provide an outlet for inappropriate behavior and can potentially expose the company to liability.

This webinar will help you target potential sources of liability and proactively address them through policies and thoughtful planning.

This webinar also will explore the considerations any employer should examine when deciding whether to serve alcohol at its function, harassment and other behaviors to look out for, and strategies for addressing issues related to religious differences. Don't let your company's party leave you with the gift of unwanted liability and litigation.
