Merry Christmas from all at Syndey Mitchell LLP

Santa - Christmas Parties etiquetteSanta Clause may very well be coming to town but it is important for employers to remember that tribunals are often tasked to rule on whose been ‘naughty or nice’ at the office Christmas do! So let’s keep you off the naughty list!!

AVOIDING EMPLOYMENT LAW ISSUES AT CHRISTMAS

It is vital that each and every Christmas reveller attending the festive celebrations hosted by employers is made fully aware of the policies and procedures governing their behaviour and expectations.

Employers should take steps to ensure they are up to date on what their responsibilities are in relation to parties or events which they organise or sponsor to mark the festive season.

After all, it is the employer who will have to answer for the actions or risks to welfare of the employees at the event.

So, what should you do? Employers need to make their list and check it twice before decking the halls to ensure they avoid a jingle hell at this year’s Christmas do!

POLICIES AND PROCEEDURES

All employers should have in place the relevant policies and procedures setting out the expectations on standards on behaviour for all staff, both in the office and at work related functions including the office Christmas party. Employees should be gently but firmly reminded that the event is organised by their employer and so they should adhere to the expectations of their employer. It may seem a tad draconian but taking such as approach could save an employer a lot less stress and financial risk in the long run.

It does not mean that you have to label yourself as the  ‘spoil sport’ or Ebenezer Scrooge. The very ethos behind the annual Christmas party is to allow employees to unwind and relax as reward for their hard work throughout the year. Providing a fine meal, a glass of wine or two and even some live entertainment can be a perfect token of your appreciation.

We ho-ho-hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (and that you have an incident-free Christmas party)!

Sydney Mitchell Charity Golf raises £2600 for charity - 3rd Place - Sydney Mitchell Fahmida Ismail TeamA glorious sunny but windy day saw our highly skilled golfers raise a fantastic £2600 for local Midlands’ charities. Ladbrook Park Golf Course was in excellent condition with Midway Care Group winning the competition.

Eastcote Wealth Management came in a very close 2nd place and Fahmida Ismail’s Sydney Mitchell team in 3rd place.  It was an exciting completion with Mulligans, Jokers and a yellow ball thrown in to keep players on their toes.

Freedom Technical won the Yellow Ball competition; the longest drive was won by Andy Chubb of Insol Group and the nearest to the pin winner was Richard Hales of Green Office Technologies.  Unfortunately no one won the £5000 Hole in One Prize on the 12th however Angela Harrison was the first to get on the green with an impressive drive.

Our two Midlands’ charities will benefit from the £2600 raised on the day; Age UK Solihull* and the Buddy Bags Foundation**.

Div Singh, Senior Partner at Sydney Mitchell commented:

All players showed their generosity in supporting the fundraising and a special thank you to Automated Systems Group who sponsored the 18th hole and to Ladbrook Golf Club for donating a four-ball for the raffle.  £935 was raised from the mulligans and raffles alone.  It is great to be able to raise much needed funds for Age UK Solihull and the Buddy Bag Foundation.

Lorraine Hart of Age UK Solihull commented:

We are really grateful to Sydney Mitchell for organising the Charity Golf Day and would like to thank everyone who supported this event and for selecting Age UK Solihull for their charity this year.  Everyone needs help in later life, and it is great to be able to give that much needed support to older people in the Solihull Borough.

Alison Bird of the Buddy Bag Foundation, added:

The Buddy Bag foundation was set up to help children fleeing violent situations, often having to leave home quickly, without the chance to collect basic items.  Often children arrive in emergency accommodation with just the clothes they are wearing.  Every penny raised by charity goes to creating the Buddy bags that are given to children affected by situations beyond their Control.  Each bag costs £25 and contains the basic toiletries, pyjamas, socks, underwear, book, picture frame and a small teddy bear to provide a little comfort for them.

We thank the generosity of the players and Sydney Mitchell for supporting our Charity.
