Work-Related Social Events Policy
This Work-Related Social Events Policy reminds employees of what their employers expect of them and that their behaviour at social events may have serious consequences.
A work-related social event, like a Christmas party, is effectively an extension of the workplace and so an employer is likely to be held vicariously liable for the actions of their employees. An employer will have a defence to a claim of vicarious liability if they can show that they took such steps as were ‘reasonably practicable’ to prevent the employee doing the act. A Work-Related Social Events Policy could be of assistance to employers in this regard.
The Work-Related Social Events Policy covers:
• Alcohol use;
• Illegal drugs;
• Not drinking and driving;
• Not tolerating improper conduct and unacceptable behaviour; and
• Employees not bringing the Company’s name into disrepute.
