The office Christmas party is coming up: How much should you drink?

Russell Advocaten B.V.
Amsterdam, Netherlands

The answer to this pressing question was given by our employment law specialist, Jan Dop LL.M., in the Algemeen Dagblad of 12 December 2018. In the interview, he points out that problems during and after office parties are often caused by excessive drinking. He also addresses the question whether alcohol abuse can be a reason for dismissal and what can be done when an employee calls in sick but is just hung over.

You can find more information on our website about what you, as an employer, can do against alcohol abuse at work and how you assure that a company holiday party where alcohol is served remains feast for everyone. You can also contact Jan Dop, LL.M via e-mail (
