Ep. 13 – How Can You Throw a Safe and Appropriate Holiday Party?

Does your business want to throw a holiday party but you’re afraid of potential shenanigans…and the liability that might result from them? In this episode geared toward employers, Marketing Manager and paralegal Matt Tedeschi welcomes Laura Feldman, plaintiff’s employment attorney and specialist on workplace sexual assault, to discuss what every employer should do before, during, and after a party to minimize the likelihood of harassment, assault, and other legal claims. Perfect for HR representatives, in-house counsel, and anyone else involved in risk assessment, this episode will help you throw a party that’s both fun and professional—and prevents you from getting a call from Laura the next day.
