    Halloween Celebrations Can Be Scary for HR

    As organizations attempt to relax and have fun during the month of October, they could be setting themselves up for possible litigation.  Allowing employees to dress in costumes could cause problems.  Employees with strong religious beliefs may not find it humorous to dress as a Pope or Moses. Costumes could violate your companies dress code policy.  This program will explore possible harassment and legal issues with holiday celebrations.  It will also introduce other means of celebrating without being offensive.
