Queensland (Aus) – Volunteers protection

Posted in Australia, Australia Third Sector, Queensland (Australia) Third sector by valeria80 on July 23, 2008

It is an organisation’s responsibility to ensure that appropriate insurance cover is provided to protect volunteer staff and volunteer members of community management committees.

The Queensland State Government passed a Civil Liability Bill in 2003 which has a volunteer protection clause included. Volunteers working in registered not-for-profit community organisations engaged in voluntary activities defined by the organisation are protected from legal action provided they are not acting outside the law.
