General question about having seasonal events (e.g., summer picnic, holiday party). My office has always had these events during work hours, with the employee contributing to cover the entire cost of the event. For example, an employee generally pays about $15 to cover the rental and food. Also, the events are generally for employees only, with no spouse/significant other attendance.
This is way different that what happens in the private sector, and I understand the general reason why. But with that said, I am curious.
- Are they any laws/regulations/guidance around these events that drive the cost to the employee?
- Do any offices pay for these events out of their budget? (If so, how?)
