Christmas parties are a fun way to reward staff and celebrate the end of another year. But sometimes the ‘silly’ season can quickly head south. Getting people together away from their normal workspace - particularly if you add alcohol to the mix - can be a recipe for trouble if you're not careful. And when staff behave badly, parties can turn into a legal nightmare for employers.

Join this free session to help ensure your festive season is trouble-free. Senior Associate Sam Cahill, from Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors, will explain what can go wrong, how to reduce risks and what to do if employees misbehave.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The essential policies your business needs
  • How to avoid incidents occuring
  • What can and cannot be enforced by employers at offsite events
  • What to do when things don't work out
