HR Question of the Month: Can you ask for a waiver for workers' compensation claims?
from Federated Insurance via CEMA
Can the company request an employee, including a pregnant worker, to sign a waiver from liability, due to potential danger of on-the-job injury sustained or harm sustained, at the hands of a mental health patient who is a resident of our facility? Would a request for waiver of liability expose the company to pregnancy discrimination, based on terms of employment, work conditions or any other employment terms?
