Avoiding Religious Accommodation, ADA and Harassment Claims While Hosting Office Parties

One of the fun things employers get to do is host a party around the holidays. How could anyone be upset with the employer throwing a little holiday cheer around?  Free food and drink for everyone!  Hosting parties and get-togethers for your employees is an excellent way to boost up their morale and make them feel that the management cares, establishing a stronger self of belonging to the company.

No doubt, parties and get-togethers are important, but there are also all kinds of legal risks involved in hosting such parties - particularly when alcohol is involved. In this webinar, expert speaker Susan Fahey Desmond, who is a partner with the law firm Jackson Lewis PC, will assist HR professionals and employers in planning and hosting a perfect holiday party for their employee while avoid the legal pitfalls.

Session Highlights:

  • Risks of serving alcohol at the office party

  • Testing for alcohol consumption before allowing one to leave the party
  • ADA considerations for testing for alcohol/drug use
  • Avoiding harassment claims
  • Religious accommodation concerns in planning the party
  • Practical suggestions for limiting liability
