While they may be vital to morale and team building, company-sponsored holiday parties, picnics, outings and other social events are also a liability nightmare, especially when alcohol is served. The first step in managing these liability risks is to establish a set of ground rules for employee behaviour during such events. To help you, we’ve gathered a number of top of the line policies from companies in Canada, the U.S., Europe and even Australia and combined their best features into a template that you can adapt to fit the circumstances of your own organization. We’ve also added a section addressing social events held at work premises that are not company-sponsored, e.g., birthdays or baby showers.
