Office Party Risks

Many companies host parties for employees throughout the year at Christmas, Halloween, and for various other public and private celebratory occasions. As an employee, you may see these parties as a great way to network, socialize informally with colleagues, and partake of free food and drinks.

However, because these parties often provide free-flowing alcohol, they can be a dangerous place. To find out more about office parties and your personal safety, contact experienced Rhode Island DUI defense lawyer Matthew Marin at 401-287-4384.

Company Parties

If your company is picking up the tab for drinks at an office event, some individuals might drink more than they would normally. Several factors can contribute to dangerous levels of alcohol consumption at office parties, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Nervousness
  • Power and political struggles
  • Embarrassment

However, many employees at office parties do not drink to the point of intoxication, but still find themselves facing charges like DUI and DWI afterwards. In the event that law enforcement officials notice an office party breaking up, and many intoxicated individuals leaving the same place at the same time, they may assume that everyone is intoxicated and charge a perfectly sober and responsible individual with operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If this has happened to you, you need to defend yourself against these charges.
