Liability & Holiday Office Parties!

Keep Your Business Protected During Your Holiday Work Party

If you happen to work at an office, then you probably know the next few weeks will be Christmas party planning time! Who does not love an excuse to get together and enjoy each other’s company, as you welcome the holiday season? While holiday parties can be a blast, it is important to keep in mind how the business’s liability could be affected by an accident.

Liability laws differ between states, but the chances that a company would be held liable for an office party-related accident are high. The main area of concern is alcohol consumption. It can be hard to monitor which of your employees has had too much to drink. If one chooses to get behind the wheel, and causes an accident, the business could be paying for it! In some instances, a separate liquor liability policy could be the savior your business needs.

Sexual harassment is another area of concern that should be taken into consideration during the party planning process. Make sure that the company’s sexual harassment policy has been adequately updated. It is beneficial to examine your business liability policy before finalizing office party plans.
