  • Need to assume any liability for volunteers?

    We are an occupational therapy clinic and have recently had college students observing to earn classroom credit. One student wants to put in volunteer time, which we will allow. Is there any liability for this volunteer that we have to be responsible to assume? Or can we have her sign a "no liability" waiver?

    You should check with your insurance broker. Two types of potential liability occur to me: (1) any liability for his actions if he provides any services to patients, and (2) worker's comp liability if is injured on the job.
