Are Holiday Parties Too Risky? Not at All!


Setting Boundaries


The following suggestions will help minimize your company's exposure to liability, while enabling you to convey the event's true spirit and intent.


*Set a tone of moderation before holiday parties through interoffice memos or meetings, reminding employees to be responsible.


*Assess the ability of attendees to get home safely.


*Arrange transportation for intoxicated employees, either by having designated drivers or by using a transportation service.


*Hire a separate caterer to serve alcohol. Instruct the caterer not to serve anyone who is visibly drunk, and to notify an appropriate person if insobriety is observed.


*Consider a voucher system to limit the number of drinks served, or serve alcohol for only a short period.


*Don't require employees to attend as a condition of their employment.


*Schedule events on weekends or after normal working hours.


*Don't take attendance at the event.


*Investigate all complaints. Failure to respond to any single complaint can lead to greater liability than the alleged misconduct.


*Don't dismiss complaints associated with the company's holiday party without conducting a thorough investigation.


*Make sure there are plenty of non-alcoholic beverages available.


*Provide discount rooms if the party is held at a hotel.


*Don't pay for drinks. When employees pay for drinks out of their own pocket, they're not as quick to buy them.


*Hold the party at an offsite location.


*Make the party a family affair; include spouses and children.


*Designate certain supervisors or managers to oversee the event. 


Holiday parties represent an interactive venue for employees and employers and certainly shouldn't be written off because of a few potential challenges. Plan ahead with these items in mind to ensure a successful and pleasant event for all.
