Listen Now: 10 Can’t-Miss Holiday Party Etiquette Tips
It’s holiday party time but not all of them end in good tidings.
Many employers use this time of year to show their employees a little gratitude. And in most cases that gratitude includes appetizers, music and an open bar. So if you’re planning on getting festive in your off hours, employment lawyers have ten tips to keep things professional.
