Should alcohol be served at company events? Who is held liable if someone is injured or injuries someone else after drinking at a company event? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 30 people die every day in alcohol-related car accidents. To put that number another way, an alcohol-impaired driver causes an accident that results in fatal injuries every 51 minutes. Car accidents are, by far, the most common incident after drinking at a company party, but other inappropriate behavior by employees can also be fueled. What is your company’s liability in those situations? What policies and training can you implement to avoid costly lawsuits?
