Issues covered:

In this webinar, we will discuss questions on the 'love-it-or-hate-it' Christmas Party and will look at issues such as:

  • Legal Risks of Christmas Parties and what strategies can employers follow to mitigate the prospect of claims arising
  • Relevant policies, e.g. codes of conduct, social media, bullying and harassment etc.
  • An employer’s duty of care
  • Dealing with complaints arising post-event

The CIPD has reported this week that employers are taking an increasingly conservative approach to the Christmas party season, as fear over the reputational and legal fallout from poor behaviour at festive get-togethers causes them to scale back their plans or take measures to safeguard staff.
