My upper-upper manager has decided to host the holiday party at his home. Only employees are invited (no spouses) and approx 100 people are expected.
Now, he is NOT paying for this personally. The event is being catered and paid for by the company, he is only providing the venue. However, it's very nice of him to open his home to so many people.
We have been told for some weeks that spouses are not invited. Fine, I understand and mine will not be attending. However, a few days ago one of the women in the office just got engaged. The next day her fiancee was in the office picking her up for lunch. She introduced him to upper-upper mgr and told him of the engagement. So, he invites fiancee to the party.
My question - is this right? I mean, on the one hand it's his home, but on the other hand, it's a company party.
