The holidays are often the time of year when companies look to celebrate their successes and boost employee morale by hosting an annual holiday party. In recent years, unfortunately, many companies have faced liability as a result of serving alcohol at their holiday parties due to guests consuming too much alcohol and injuring themselves or others. In these instances, courts have imposed liability to companies if the company’s conduct created or exacerbated the risk. As a consequence, some companies decide to ban alcohol at their parties altogether.
