Welcome to Workplace Law’s 2018 Christmas Party Guide.

No, this wasn’t written by the Grinch! While we are lawyers we still believe that it is possible for employers to host work social functions that are fun and safe for everyone.

In our Guide we discuss some of the more interesting cases involving work social functions and offer you practical tips on how to plan and host a work social function. We finish off our Guide with ‘best practice’ strategies for employers and HR staff in dealing with the messy aftermath of an event gone wrong.

Happy reading and safe partying!
