 Avoid Getting into HR Hot Water This Party Season! 

he DSC team love an excuse to socialise. So, with the festive season approaching, it seemed appropriate to offer some practical tips for businesses on smooth planning of the annual office Christmas party.

Inevitably, there will be mention of the tax and VAT consequence of the Christmas party and any seasonal gifts you might be considering for the team.

We’ll also be welcoming HR and Employment Lawyer and head of Berwins Solicitors’ industry rated Employment Practice, Mike Patterson to explain what employers need to know, what can happen if the party goes wrong and take a look at some interesting legal case studies.

Join us for breakfast, networking and knowledge on Friday 10th and Friday 24th November 2017 at 8am at The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate. The event is FREE but places must be booked in advance. Breakfast will be available beforehand and we will finish the discussion no later than 10am.
