This is a popular time of year for many companies to hold a holiday office party. Such events can establish camaraderie between employees, offer an opportunity to recognize the success of the past year, and motivate employees to work hard for the employer in the future. One practical tip that many follow to reduce potential liability with a holiday party is to allow staff to bring their significant other, another guest, or even clients to the big event. This may be done in hopes of curtailing any questionable behavior that might result in a charge of unlawful harassment and making sure everything remains “grandma-approved.”
