===Attending Office Parties===
#Most hold one is allowed to attend office parties,<ref name=":2">[ Rabbi J. David Bleich], The reason for this is because a signup sheet indicates that attendance to the holiday party is completely optional and, therefore, not attending will not cause one to lose out from a business perspective.</ref> but preferably only for business purposes (ex. to receive a salary bonus). Many who are lenient in regard to attending office parties still say that one should not remain at the party for too long.<ref>[ Rabbi Hershel Schachter]</ref> <ref name=":3">, [ Rabbi Doniel Neustadt]</ref> Some, however, are strict about attending office parties and say that one may not attend the parties altogether.<ref>Shut Mishne Halachot 7:118</ref>
#One should not attend an office party that has a sign up sheet (or the like) as opposed to a formal invitation.<ref name=":2" />
#If there is no Avodah Zara present, attending office holiday parties has the same considerations as other office parties.<ref name=":3" >[ Rabbi Doniel Neustadt]</ref>
