How to Protect Your Church and Reduce Liability Risks
Information gained during this seminar could literally prevent a church from having to dissolve. Courts have determined that church will be held to the same standard as other nonprofit groups that work with children… Boy and Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Club, etc. Be sure you church leaders include all child care givers attend this seminar. You will be carefully guided on the risk issues facing the church and how the church can show “reasonable care” in preventing accidents, abuse and other issues from occurring. QUESTIONS ARE ON THE INCREASE • WHAT LAWS APPLY TO CHURCHES? • IS THE CHURCH LIABLE IF HIRED OR VOLUNTEER STAFF ABUSE A CHILD? • AT WHAT POINT SHOULD THE CHURCH DO A BACKGROUND CHECK ON POTENTIAL PERSONNEL OR VOLUNTEERS? • IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIRED STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS?
