Christmas party time

Added on Tuesday 25 Oct 2016


Employment laws still apply during an office party or other social event, even when your event is 'off-site.'  Make sure employees know in advance what behaviour is/is not acceptable.   Useful guidelines include: 

  • consider providing free transport to the venue
  • limit the amount of alcohol available
  • provide soft drinks
  • be sensitive to people's food preferences
  • have a defined 'end-time', marked by serving coffee or soft drinks
