Arnstein & Lehr Milwaukee Associate Jesse R. Dill authored an article titled “Employers can avoid holiday party liabilities,” which appeared on November 20 on BizTimes.com. The article is cleverly written as a poem, with rhyming verses, and covers multiple topics that employers should be aware of as they plan their holiday party. Mr. Dill discusses how a holiday party should be organized to avoid liability issues that may stem from employee alcohol consumption, social media postings, sexual harassment and discrimination issues, and employees with disabilities. Mr. Dill also advises that no business should take place during the party, attendance should be optional, and the party ought to be held off the premises to avoid claims for overtime pay.
