  • Liability Forms?

    Hey all. I'm using volunteers for actors this year and was going
    to have my lawyer draw up a release form for them to sign
    to protect myself. Has anyone done anything similar? If so, does
    anyone have an example they could point me to?

      I'm in the same situation with volunteers and I'm using MANY of the forms from Kelly's book at www.hauntbook.com. If you don't have his books, I HIGHLY advise getting them. By the way, when you get them, they are small, but there is NO fluff. It is jam packed with helpful info. You won't regret the purchase.

        Liability

        Be sure to check your state laws. In MA every employer has to provide work mans compensation to every person doing work for you. Years ago my insurance agent told me that I could have all volunteers and paid employees sign a waiver of liability telling them that we werent providing work mans comp insurance and that they understood this and accepted it. We had a small injury and I was forced to lawyer up at which time he informed me that the waiver/contract wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Please do yourself a favor and consult with a lawyer to protect yourself. I have been producing outdoor Haunted Hayride / Scream Park attractions for 20+ years and have delt with many of these issues.

        Take care

            Yes, it's horrible. Even signed waivers have been undermined by slippery lawyers. They have done more damage to the business environment than high taxes and endless regulations (many of which climb because of the problems caused with money motivated law suits). You would think during a recession, it would be an excellent time to scale back some of the outrageous inroads the personal injury lawyers have made into everyone else's pockets, but instead, that's one option no one is even talking about. They say they want to create jobs. Seems to me a good way to do that without having to raise taxes or increase the debt is tort reform. But don't hold your breath. Most the politicians (and even the President) are lawyers, and they are not likely to reign in their own profession.
