Should employees and customers sign waivers? Protect your organization from COVID-19 liability claims.

COVID-19 constitutes a real risk to your employees, customers, vendors, and other parties. You need to consider ways to shield your organization from liability claims, such as:

  • State worker’s compensation benefits
  • Exclusive remedy provisions
  • Customer waivers
  • Employee waivers
  • COVID-19 terms in vendor contracts

Regardless of the notices you publish or waivers you require, your organization must adhere to safety obligations. Combining required procedures with appropriate documentation will enable you to reduce your organization’s liability for COVID-19 exposure.
