Bruce’s Summary: Well it’s that time of the year again – time for the annual “Christmas Party.” Some are not looking forward to it and some are but sadly there are those few who still don’t get it even in today’s time of national discussion about sexual harassment. In our last blog, we talked about “Harvey,” the one at work who doesn’t get it. He or she is either the one who is “god’s gift” to mankind or the one who thinks what they have to say is funny. These days their puns, jokes, pranks or subtle inappropriate comments are on a slippery slope. People are more sensitive today to inappropriate behavior and feel more empowered to respond to such inappropriate or perceived inappropriate behavior. It appears the days of ignoring it and hoping it will go away are fading into the distance. HR get ready, you may be busier in the New Year than previously thought. The author does a good job of sharing both Party Planning tips and more importantly some post-party wrap-up tips for the reader. Very Good article. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
