Matthew A. Goodin, a Senior Attorney in the Labor and Employment practice, in the firm’s San Francisco office, was quoted in HR Hero Line, in “Plan a Holiday Party That Makes Merry and Avoids Ghosts of Revelries Past.”

Following is an excerpt:

An article in the December 9, 2013, issue of California Employment Law Letter reminds employers that employees often think they can say or do things at a holiday party that they would never do during regular work activities. “Remember, even though your party may take place after work hours and off work premises, it most likely would still be considered a work-related event for legal purposes (meaning employer liability for sexual harassment),” Matthew A. Goodin, an attorney with Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. in San Francisco, wrote.

Mr. Goodin’s writing was previously highlighted by HR Hero Line, in “Prepare Now for Worry-Free Holiday Season.”
