UNITED STATES

Don't leave yourself open to a lawsuit - protect your business and your employees with these Release and Waiver Forms for U.S. companies and individuals.


Q. Why would I want someone to sign a Release and Waiver?

A.  If you provide services that could potentially result in:

  • illness (such as food services),
  • injury or death (such as skydiving or other extreme sports),
  • loss of property (including theft of items from lockers or vehicles), or
  • permanent changes to physical appearance (such as tattoos, piercings, surgical cosmetic enhancements),

you should have every customer sign a Waiver and Release Form BEFORE you provide the services.

This rule even applies to home owners who allow minors to use a pool, hot tub or spa on their property. If you can envision a situation where someone might sue you for damages, you should be getting a waiver and release signed first.

In certain circumstances, you will also want to have your customers indemnify you against any costs or damages you incur as a result of your dealings with them. For instance, a catering company would want a client to indemnify them against any legal actions brought against the company by guests attending the function who became ill due to reasons not caused by the caterer's negligence.
