It’s that time of year! Tis the season for toasts and traditions, presents and parties, secret Santa’s and sexual harassment, lawyers and lawsuits. . . Wait, what? Unfortunately, it’s true.

Common issues involve worker’s compensation claims, sexual harassment complaints, and social host liability.

Without question, planning ahead and limiting alcohol consumption are two key ways to celebrate the season—without getting sued.
