Fraser Stryker Attorney, Sally McGill, was featured in an article in the Midlands Business Journalregarding how employers can avoid risks at any office gathering or social event.
In addition to other advice provided, Ms. McGill suggested that employers should “try to limit the risks associated with alcohol by having an alcohol-free event during the noon hour or serving only beer and wine, or providing a limited number of drink tickets per employee at an evening event. The employer could close the bar an hour before an events ends, card guests who look too young to drink, or even make transportation available after the event,” she added.
Ms. McGill devotes her practice to labor and employment law, as well as to other practice areas such as federal court litigation, class action litigation, and risk management & workers compensation. For more information, please visit her Bio page.
