Employment Law Alert -- November 2011


In This Alert:

Article One:

'Tis the Season (For Holiday Party Liability)

As the holiday season nears, many companies are in the process of planning and hosting their annual holiday parties. These parties should be a chance to enjoy the holiday spirit, relax with coworkers outside the office and to celebrate a year of hard work. Holiday parties are a good opportunity for employees to socialize with supervisors and managers on a more personal level and to build their reputation and network within the Company. Unfortunately, holiday parties can also be fraught with pitfalls for employers.

Article Two:
