Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/28/2018 -- The Law Firm of Morgan Rooks, PC is a seasoned team of workplace sexual harassment lawyers serving South Jersey and its surrounding areas. The firm's lawyers not only defend a broad range of claims for sexual harassment that occur on company property and during work hours, but they also help victims whose cases are less black-and-white, such as sexual misconduct incurred at a company holiday party.
Holiday party sexual harassment can be a gray area when it comes to employer liability. If the party is held on company property and during work hours, a sexual harassment attorney can make a strong argument that the employer is liable for any sexual misconduct from his or her employees. If alcohol is served at the party and played a role in the act, it further strengthens the victim's case.
What happens if the party is held outside of company hours and at a separate location? If the attorney can prove that attending the party is found to be "within the scope of employment" of the plaintiff or defendant, the employer may be deemed liable for the misconduct. Even when attendance is not mandatory but is still strongly encouraged, this may still apply.
It is important to understand that sexual misconduct at a company party can still be considered sexual harassment in the workplace. Any employee in the Philadelphia area who experiences sexual harassment in the workplace should call an attorney right away.
