No Fun Until You Sign a Waiver!

Often without knowing exactly why, the leaders of most youth-serving organizations recognize the inherent weakness in asking children to sign contracts. Therefore, it has become common practice to either ask parents or guardians to waive their right to sue the nonprofit for injuries their child sustains, or to ask both the child participant and a parent or guardian to execute a waiver. This webinar explores some of the issues related to the use of waivers by youth-serving nonprofits, including:

  • How state court rulings differ on the enforceability of parental waivers
  • Key considerations in careful waiver drafting
  • Using a Participant Agreement as an alternative to a waiver
