Employers planning Office Holiday parties this year, should consider:

  • Sending an intra office memo reminding employees of your company policies on harrassment
  • Limiting the  hours
  • Including Spouses
  • Having a policy in place to Monitor Alcohol consumption
  • Having a plan if an employee does consume too much (e.g. uber, or taxi)
  • Do not have mistletoe – if you are serving alcohol  and have enough employees,  safe money say’s you’ll find the creepy office guy within the first hour if you hang mistletoe.

This is a killjoy post, but considering a new allegation surfaces nearly daily, it is wise to take proactive measures to avoid an HR nightmare. 

Currently, allegations are levied on names of individuals many of us know.  As a result, more victims are now, thankfully, feeling  empowered  to come forward with their stories (this means all businesses).  

A common theme with all of the  Employers I speak with, is that they truly care and are concerned about the well-being of their employees.   Unfortunately, it is not possible for an Employer to know everything single that is going on within their organization.   This why Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI), is vital.

Even in a caring work environment with outstanding HR Policies, Employers can still face claims of:

  • Discrimination
  • Harassment or 
  • Wrongful Termination

If an allegation is levied on an Employer whether it is true or groundless, EPLI will protect you financially and help relieve a tremendous amount of anxiety. 

Another amazing benefit:

The coverage we help you secure, will also include

  • A Free HR Help Line with unlimited number of calls - staffed with Professional HR Consultants and
  • Numerous free online resources.

This is an outstanding resource for your HR Employee, or if you do not have a dedicated HR employee, this resource is invaluable! 

If you would like a free EPLI quotation, call (636-519-0059) or email (service@hebbeln-ins.com). 

Here is a Post that provides even more detail about EPLI

And to end this potentially (but accurately) fear inciting post, is arguably a moderately inappropriate Christmas Party Video from SNL:
