A party gone wrong
Jim Reidy, an employment lawyer based in Manchester, N.H., hears a fair amount about office holiday parties gone wrong. Last year, the high-profile CEO of a local company kicked things off by hanging mistletoe from the front of his pants belt, Reidy says, "dancing around and making suggestions [saying,] 'It's the holidays, can't you see the mistletoe?' "
For those serving alcohol, Reidy advises other measures, like limiting the length of the party, or holding the event during the day and inviting spouses and children. Overall, says Reidy, workplace parties are far tamer than they were back in the 1980s and '90s.
"They are getting much more sensitive to it and we are getting more calls about it," he says. Some smaller clients have opted to give employees gift cards, instead. "I've advised employers to republish their sexual harassment policies to be given out prior to any holiday party," which might make for a lot less eventful morning after.

The US Forest Service recently released a video from a witness that depicts how the fire started.

The annual office holiday party is a great way to reward your employees for a job well done throughout the past year. However, you might want to think twice before allowing spiked eggnog and other alcohol-laden holiday cheer to flow freely during the celebration.
Today, this sort of activity is not worth the risk. In fact, the worst mistake an employer today can make in throwing a party is to offer unlimited alcohol, particularly in situations where no one is monitoring employee conduct.
Employer-sponsored parties present certain risks when alcohol is served. Some individuals who are under the influence of alcohol tend to lose their inhibition and engage in conduct they might not otherwise pursue had they not been drinking. Alcohol can make people too friendly or aggressive. Simply put, a holiday party can be a prime opportunity for sexual harassment and other inappropriate conduct to occur.
In Ohio, for example, a social host (the employer, in the case of office parties), who provides alcohol on company premises is typically not liable to a third person subsequently injured by the intoxicated person. This means that the employer hosting a party on company premises is not liable to a third person who was injured by an intoxicated employee leaving the event.
According to Ohio law, if the event is held at a restaurant or party center, vendors or permit holders selling the alcohol for profit may be liable for resulting injuries to third parties if they provide alcohol to noticeably intoxicated guests. The company, however, generally has no liability.
