Office Christmas Parties & Employers' Liability


In late July I began shopping for Christmas presents, there’s always a Christmas bargain to be had at that time of year. As I shuffled around ‘Poundland’ for that extra special something for the current Mrs Shepherd, to ensure that Cupid continues to look kindly upon our marriage, I began to ponder the theme for this years Chamber’s Christmas party. Of course, last year will go down in the annals of history, ambulances called, police dogs in attendance, SWAT in full riot gear. Tame by comparison to the previous years.

However, it did set my mind a' wandering, the types of injuries and the liabilities that may go with them, when injury occurs at the work’s crimbo party. Therefore as the leaves begin to fall from the trees and the news reports of gritting salt shortages begin to pervade our local news at 6, it seemed an appropriate theme for this autumn’s newsletter.
