Liability Waivers

TU strongly recommends that each chapter and council obtain written liability waivers from participants involved in any TU project. The requirements for a successful liability waiver differ from state to state, and TU urges councils and chapters to have a local lawyer review the waiver forms and amend them as necessary to bring them into compliance with the particular state’s law. A parent or legal guardian must sign the liability waiver for a child or youth (that is, anyone under 18 years of age) participating in a TU project.

When working on a cooperative project with the federal government, be sure to have all participants sign up as volunteer workers for that specific work, if that option is available. Then, should personal injury occur, the member would be covered under the federal workers compensation program.
