Christmas Essentials

Are you planning on holding a Christmas party for employees? Did you know that you are legally liable for the safety and conduct of employees at your Christmas Party?

Lawsuits arising from workplace Christmas parties cost Australian Businesses more than $6,000,000 annually. Whether it is employees behaving badly, sexual harassment, injuries during or following the party or even public liability, the list of things that employers are liable for during a Christmas Party is frightening.

To help you avoid being caught out for Christmas, the MTA SA/NT is holding a special training seminar which will address the following:

  • How much of the party is considered ‘work’ and how much is just socialising?
  • What issues do you need to consider when planning a Christmas Party?
  • What are you liable for during and following a Christmas party?
  • How can you minimise your risk and liability?
  • What policies and procedures do you need to have in place?
  • What do you do if something goes wrong?

This short-course will be presented by an industrial relations lawyer who will discuss specific cases where things have gone wrong and how you can avoid an expensive lawsuit against your business.
