What was once considered a gesture of generosity and improving office morale may now be more of a liability... especially with the #MeToo movement.

Apparently, management is concerned about inappropriate behavior and alcohol consumption.
Let's face it... that's been a concern for years. That's why we're always posting rules for holiday office parties, to get you to think about the consequences before you go...
Most of us can tell stories about parties in years past... stories that some of our co-workers wish we didn't remember. But stories are one thing; lawsuits are another.
