"Hold Harmless" Option for Staff Babysitting and Employee References
Bruno, Holly Elissa
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n193 p68-71 May-Jun 2010
Help for educators and administrators may be on the way in the form of "hold harmless" documents that allow for flexibility in enforcing program policies. Having a "No Babysitting policy," and "Hold Harmless" documentation will not stop one's program from being sued. However, with the "No Babysitting policy" and "Hold Harmless" documentation completed and kept up-to-date, a program that allows staff to babysit for families is less likely to be found liable. In this article, the author discusses the "hold harmless" option for staff babysitting and employee references, and looks at how it can make a difference to both teachers and administrators.
