I'd certainly discuss this with your boss before just bringing a camera. Perhaps the company would like to document the event and welcome the presence of a camera.

In the US at least, people  are fair game in public places but I'd say whoever is staging a private event can determine if photography is allowed or not. And there are lots of gradations. I went to a large private party a few days ago. There were parents taking pictures of their kids using compact cameras and cell phones. Nobody thought a thing of that. But if someone had been walking around doing documentary photography...
