Liability Form and Volunteer Tracking

OCT 15 2008: THE LIABILITY FORM PROCESS HAS CHANGED! PLEASE READ BELOW!

The LUCAP Acknowledgement of Risk and Waiver of Liability Form, or the LUCAP Liability Form, is a fact of life for current volunteers. Our work environment simply isn't the same as it was before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and Risk Management stipulates that volunteers must be informed of the risks associated with a LUCAP project and agree to waive Loyola University New Orleans of any liability in the event that something unfortunate happens.

The Process:

    1. Fill out the LUCAP liability online form once each academic year.
    2. Each time you attend a LUCAP event, sign the new simple volunteer sheet. There is no need to print this. The project leader will do that!

Its that easy!

The Benefits:

These forms, though we didn’t ask for them, provide us with unprecedented record-keeping capabilities. They'll streamline headcounts when traveling, allow us to call you if you get lost, and eliminate the guesswork regarding questions of who did what for how long on which dates. Beyond those individual benefits are the organizational benefits for LUCAP. For example, with the forms we can extract quantifiable data that allows us to say "On September 9, 2006, 45 volunteers completed a total of 247.5 hours of community service in the form of house gutting and floating sheetrock. The hourly wage (mean) for this type of work in Louisiana is $15.70, resulting in a volunteer contribution of $3885.75 for that event." The credibility gained from these types of statements is usually reserved for professional service organizations.

Old School Forms:

If for some reason you can't sign up online, here's the original paper form. Please don't use this except in the case of an emergency.
