FAQ'S ON FORM WAIVERS:

What is a waiver and why does my business need one?

A waiver is a legal document in which one party voluntarily relinquishes a right or claim against another party. It's crucial for businesses engaging in activities that could pose risk of injury or disputes. By having customers sign a waiver, your business can mitigate (but of course, not completely prevent) liability risks, reducing the potential for costly legal battles.

What should be included in a waiver form?

A strong waiver form should clearly outline the risks involved in the activity, state that the participant agrees to undertake those risks, and explicitly relinquish the right to sue in the event of injury or other damages. Ideally, it should be as simple and understandable as possible to non-lawyers and tailored to the specific context of your business activities.

Are waivers legally binding?

Yes, waivers are legally binding if crafted correctly, though it's important to note there is always legal risk to physically risky activities. Waviers can help, but they cannot eliminate all risk. A good waiver should be clearly written, signed voluntarily, and both parties must fully understand the terms. For the waiver to be enforceable, it must not include any provisions that violate public policy or laws. For example, you generally cannot waive "gross negligence" or "willful misconduct," as it violates public policy. So while you want to steer clear of unenforceable terms such as that, other terms are enforceable.
