    • No policy at my job. There is usually always someone in my office passing out invites to something. Discreetly of course so as not to offend those who aren’t being invited.

    • I’m not currently working, but my previous employer did not have a policy against it.  I have worked places where office supplies and computers could not be used for personal use so you could not xerox or e-mail invites.

    • Okay, thanks. I’m wondering this because we had a volunteer who was very offended today because she didn’t get invited to a birthday party. She called later to tell me she was thinking about getting a lawyer to file a discrimination case, because she believes she’s treated unfairly, and told me there should be a policy forbidding the passing out of invitations unless everyone is invited. To add insult to injury, we recently added some photos to a gallery of our volunteers and her photo was not included. This was my doing, as we did not have one of her and I wanted the gallery in place by the day of our presentation.

      I feel badly for her that she feels this way. Perhaps I should have a no invite policy.  

      Thanks for your feedback!

    • If the party is housed in your facility, then you may consider setting up a policy.  However, if the party is arranged among employees themselves and celebrate elsewhere, that’s their personal business.  Perhaps a disclaimer on the employee manual to clarify this will be good.  Like if party is to be held in house, must approved by management.  Management should then be informed everyone needed to be included.  

      Again, if the company has one party for one, you will need for the rest.  Best is to encourage them to celebrate by going out to lunch or meet outside the company promises.

      You never know who is out there to get you - like the sensitive ee you mentioned.

    • Theres no policy at my work, I just know that If an Employee has a party at their house, managers are not allowed to attend that party and fratinize with the employees. Thats all I know. But If It’s a party thats held at work or thrown by the managment at work then It’s always posted on the bulletin board for everyone to see.

    • No policy here either.  Very small company I work at.  But I’ve never heard of a policy prohibiting handing out invitations.
