An employer would like to develop an alcohol policy that takes into account employees who cannot drink due to religious reasons. Esther Smith and Martin Brewer advise.
- A manager may invite their team out after work to celebrate a fundraising success.
- We may crack open a bottle of champagne in the HQ workplace (200 HQ-based employees) to celebrate a birthday or Christmas, for example. Obviously, consumption is monitored to reflect the legal limit.
