Is it Appropriate When Your Boss Wants to Drink Alcohol with the Team?

Dear Office Mom,
Should a boss ever have a drink with people they work with?

Dear Bar Fly,

Sure! As long as the boss doesn’t have ulterior motives, or isn’t creepy I think it’s acceptable. That being said, the boss does have responsibilities. Invite more than one person, limit intake (self and others), be in a public place, suggest food and/or Uber when needed, and be mindful of how actions and words might be perceived in a more casual setting. Oh, and the boss should pick up the tab.  I hope this helps!
