We regularly get questions about volunteer waiver templates for TRS. Our recommendations?
1. Consult your attorney to ensure your volunteer waiver meets your state laws. Using a waiver template from another state could be a big mistake.
2. Ensure that the waiver is reviewed with your insurance company. The bottom line is a waiver does not stop volunteers from suing your organization or the sponsor affiliates. But it is important that your insurance company has reviewed your waiver and approved it.
3. If you have volunteers under the age of 18, you should have a parental signature. We recommend a printed version with original signature.
