Volunteer Immunity Laws

Many states have volunteer immunity statutes that offer protection for liability while doing charitable work.

Google your state name and “volunteer immunity.”

Such laws can not be depended on to provide protection for directors and officers in the non-profit world.

Such laws only protect volunteers for state issues – no protection from federal law and rules – ADA, EEOC, discrimination laws, etc.

I say again, these laws are not a replacement for directors and officers insurance.
