WORKERS in Barnsley have been urged to enjoy their Christmas party festivities - but not let their hair down too much.

The warning comes from Barnsley solicitors Raleys who say it's not unknown for incidents at Christmas parties to end up in court.

Marianne Haworth, head of employment, said: "I have come across cases including a woman who was awarded £10,000 after a colleague sexually harassed her at a party.

"I don’t want to be ‘bah humbug’ about Christmas dos, but you have to remember that the office party is legally an extension of the office environment, even if it is off-site and outside working hours."
