Geneviève Beaudin Interviewed by LCN on the Responsibilities of Employers & Employees During Christmas Parties
Geneviève Beaudin, a lawyer in the employment & labour law group at Langlois lawyers, was interviewed recently on the program Le Québec matin aired on the LCN television network, during a segment on the responsibilities of employers and employees during company Christmas parties.
The obligations and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee at the company Christmas party are generally the same as those that apply at work, whether the party is held in the office premises or elsewhere.
In order to guard against the occurrence of any untoward event, according to Ms. Beaudin, it is important to avoid any behaviour or interaction that could be characterized as harassment or that could damage the company’s reputation or that of other employees on social media, for example. In addition, employers must take steps to ensure the health and safety of their employees, particularly where the consumption of alcohol is concerned.
