Case 399 - School leaver’s party

Issue

School leaver’s party organised by parents in a village hall stated that 'one parent per  child must attend the party - due to health & safety reasons'.

Panel opinion

There is no work activity involved here: it’s simply a party organised by volunteers, so workplace health and safety legislation does not apply.  But, it’s their party and they can set their own ground rules if they want to.
