After Hours with AFG LAW

04 Nov 15, 9:00AM

What can go wrong at your Christmas Party?  It’s just a bit of fun, right?

Or indeed anytime! However, Christmas festivities sometimes bring the worst out in people and we have Richard Veni, a Barrister from Bank House Chambers in Sheffield, coming over to Bury and sharing his thoughts on a whole range of scenarios including those below. 

Richard joined chambers having been a fully qualified duty solicitor and solicitor advocate and obtained his Higher Rights of Audience in 2011.  He is a seasoned practitioner with significant experience in all areas of criminal proceedings and his experience as a solicitor means that he has personal knowledge of every stage of a prosecution from the initial police station call to the conclusion of a case in Court.

At our After Hours event, Richard will cover what you should do if:

  • A member of staff is extremely drunk and behaving inappropriately at your Christmas party

  • A member of staff is hit on by a co-worker or a boss

  • You want to sack somebody due to their behaviour

  • You find drugs are being taken at your office party

  • One or more of your team get involved in a fight

  • Offensive comments or gripes are aired and escalate into a showdown

  • You get complaints from staff following the event

These very serious matters will be discussed with humour and from an employer’s perspective.

To reserve your seat (limited to 35) please book here - tickets will be £10 to cover food on the night.
