November and December is party season. Ever considered the effect that the office Christmas party may have on your employment status.
While you might want to blame it on the open bar, drunken behaviour at the official office Christmas party and the after party can lead to a breach of employment contract.
Drunk dialling the boss, photocopying body parts, lap dances and champagne kisses are some (extreme) examples of inappropriate behaviour and misuse of office equipment.
Some employers are implementing a ban on alcohol at staff parties in an effort to curb the post event complaints and disciplinary matters. There are a number of processes that employers can put in place to allow staff the have fun at the party, and be mindful of their safety and conduct.
