D Magazine Publishes Article by Rogge Dunn on How to Avoid Company Liability at Holiday Parties

D Magazine published an article written by Rogge Dunn about how to prevent company liability at holiday parties.

These days, people can easily videotape using their cell phones. Because of this, most companies adhere to a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual innuendos, boorish acts and out of control behavior at holiday parties. Indeed, failure to adopt such policies can open up the door to lawsuits against the company.

In the article, Dunn recommends adopting five policies that can lower the risk of legal trouble and company liability after holiday parties. Possible legal trouble includes sexual harassment and personal injury lawsuits. Those five policies are listed below:

  1. Limit the Impact of Alcohol: eliminate a “free pour” environment and limit the number of drink tickets per employee.
  2. Prohibit the Use of Drugs: even in states where marijuana is legal, it’s best to prohibit the use of drugs.
  3. Check Your Insurance: ensure company insurance covers on-site and off-site holiday parties.
  4. Manage Transportation: require employees to utilize Lyft, Uber, etc.
  5. Keep the Environment and Location Professional: the right location can promote professional behavior and reduce the risk of employees becoming inebriated.
