Employers’ responsibilities at Christmas party
It is the Employer’s responsibility to take care of your employees during and after a work Christmas party. But you may be wondering, what does this really mean? Simply put, your responsibilities do not cease to exist just because you’re at a Christmas party.
Even if you organise a great Christmas party it is still considered part of the ‘workplace’. If something goes wrong and unless you have a Christmas miracle, you will be liable for not taking reasonable steps to prevent inappropriate or unlawful behaviour.
