Planning Your Employee Party: Keys to a Celebration Without Litigation

This ondemand course will help you target potential sources of liability and proactively address them through policies and thoughtful planning. This ondemand course will also explore the considerations any employer should examine when deciding whether to serve alcohol at its function, harassment and other behaviors to look out for, and strategies for addressing issues related to religious differences. Don't let your company's party leave you with the gift of unwanted liability and litigation.
