With the Holiday Season in full gear, employers across the country are planning holiday parties and holiday parties often involve alcohol. This article provides a reminder on Social Host liability whereby employers could become liable for the injuries caused by intoxicated employees to themselves or others during the function or after they have left the function if proper safeguards are not put in place.
The holiday season is upon us! Lights are being strung on houses, trees are going up in family rooms and the snow is beginning to stick to the ground.
