Christmas Party/ Silly Season Reminder | Seminar


Event Details

21 November 2019, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

The end of year period is a time for celebration, with internal Christmas parties and client functions to see out the year. When things go wrong it means a busy time for our lawyers.

For you to really relax into the festivities, we are presenting seminars to help employers prevent the risks in advance.

In this seminar, we will provide you with some “war stories” and give a practical guide for managing the risks associated with workplace functions.

This seminar covers:

  • Outline the types of things that can go wrong
  • Discuss the policies and procedures your business should have in place
  • Discuss the elements of good event planning and managing the event itself
  • Explain what to do if things go wrong.


Seminar Duration
1 hour
