Excess Liability Coverage for University Employees, Officers, and Agents
- Standard insurance letter template explaining the University’s coverage under the Tort Claims Act and the State’s excess liability insurance policy
Many divisions at UNC Charlotte engage volunteers to do work for the University. These volunteers are a valuable resource for the University. However, volunteers are not considered University employees and do not enjoy many of the protections of employees, such as Worker’s Compensation and the State Personnel Act. It is important that each volunteer understands the protections afforded, as well as the limits of those protections afforded, while volunteering for the University. In addition, it is important that each volunteer understands their obligations, such as compliance with University policies. Therefore, every University volunteer should sign a Volunteer Agreement.
