Assignment 2 – Liability Waiver Analysis The second assignment is focused on waiver of liability contracts. As we discussed in the class, “even if all four elements of negligence are proven, liability does not automatically follow. There are many factors that can limit liability or discharge it completely.” (Corbett et al., 2008, p. 21). One of these factors is waiver of liability. In groups of up to three people, select a tourism/recreation activity. Then, find five Canadian providers (companies who deliver that tourism/recreation service; for example bungee jumping), download their waiver forms and analyze it. After that, find two non-Canadian companies that deliver the same service/activity (preferably English language waivers but you can use other languages if you can translate to English). Create a report about what you learned from your investigation. Notes: · You can do this assignment as a team or individually. If you want to do this as a team (up to three people). · A list of recreation activities is provided at the end of this document. You can pick one of those or choose another activity that interests you. Report: · Report your analysis in a 4 to 6 pages document (follow APA guidelines). · Add a copy of all the 10 waiver forms you analyzed as appendix. Provide the name of the company and a link to their website (if available). · Review the lecture notes on waiver, liability and negligent. Considering what you have learned about waivers, how many flaws you can find in each waiver form? What things are done well in each waiver form? Create a list of these for each waiver. · Submit you report before the midnight (11:59 pm) of Feb. 28th (submit a PDF file to VIU Learn). Presentation: We will discuss you findings in the classroom (online sync session). Be prepared to talk about your findings as a class discussion. All teams/individuals will talk about their results. No PowerPoint presentation required. Follow the directions below to prepare your report for activity 2: Review what we learned today (see the lecture notes, video and the chapter on VIU Learn). Find five Canadian and two international companies/organizations. Download the waiver forms from their website (or print as PDF). Review each waiver form and identify the issues. Then prepare a report. Include each company’s name and report your analysis of their waiver form. You can use point form in your report (provide enough detail for each point). I am not expecting an essay style document. So you don’t need to write much. Simply highlight the pros and cons of each waiver form. Include the waiver forms as an appendix. Let me know if you had questions. List of recreation activities you may want to choose form:Hunting Kayaking Surfing Snorkelling.
