Human Resources Luncheon Presents: HR Survival Guide to a Successful Holiday Party
As holiday parties are fast approaching, it is important to plan ahead to prevent a HR nightmare that may put you or your business at risk.
Holiday parties are an opportunity to spread holiday cheer among the company and is an exciting time to mingle with colleagues and have a great time. Aside from the holiday spirit and joy that comes with your company’s party, they can also make a recipe for disaster.
On November 15th, the IMC Human Resources Committee is pleased to invite Amber Solano, an accomplished litigator and Partner with Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, to share best practices to take to avoid employee misconduct at holiday parties, especially during the “Me Too” movement.
Ms. Solano will provide employers and HR professionals with precautionary steps to ensure that your holiday party runs smoothly. HR professionals will learn how to provide employees with behavior expectations to prevent any misconduct, take harassment and sexual harassment complaints seriously, being mindful of social media posts, and next day work expectations.
At the end of the day, holiday parties are supposed to be fun and give employees the opportunity to wind down. Providing employees with expectations and reminding them that company policies still apply will help prevent an HR disaster given that too much cheer can lead to catastrophe.
Ms. Solano has years of experience on this issue and earlier this year she discussed the importance of the “Me Too” movement and provided employers with best practices to take when a sexual harassment occurs in the workplace.
Ms. Solano is an accomplished litigator that represents various businesses in the private and public sector in all areas of labor and employment law, in state and federal courts, as well as before various administrative agencies. She has years of experience in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, leaves of absences, privacy, and the First Amendment cases. She regularly drafts employment agreements, employee pay plans, proprietary information agreements, employee handbooks, and other personnel policies.
Ms. Solano has been named a “Southern California Rising Star” every year since 2012 and was included in the list of “Top Women Attorneys in Southern California” by Super Lawyers, a national rating service for outstanding attorneys.
