With Robert Hill, Robert Hill
This December, it is worth remembering that it has been established by the courts, to the misfortune of many employers, that social occasions organised by an employer, including the office Christmas party or even just team drinks in the local bar, will be considered to be an extension of employment. The concern for employers should be, therefore, that they will be held liable for the actions or comments of their employees, even when they take place at the office Christmas party.
