Community Water Center

Review of Template Insurance and Limitation of Liability Provisions

Summary:

Assist a California nonprofit committed to ensuring access to clean water with a consultation on their template insurance and limitation of liability provisions.

Referred by:

Jurisdiction(s): U.S. (CA-based nonprofit)
About the Organization: The Community Water Center acts as a catalyst for community-driven water solutions through organizing, education, and advocacy in California.
Legal Entity Type: Nonprofit/Charity
SDG(s): Clean Water and Sanitation
Legal Issue(s):

Community Water Center works on community projects (sometimes providing technical assistance as a government contractor) that require the organization to hire sub-contractors and consultants. They have a template contract that includes insurance and limitation of liability provisions. Oftentimes, sub-contractors/consultants will try to amend this language. The Community Water Center team is seeking a consultation to discuss their template provisions and consider at a high-level what red flags they should look out for when changes are made.
