Volunteer Waiver and Agreement

I agree to act as a Volunteer for the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission (the Volunteer Program). I understand and agree that I am not an employee of Oakland County or Oakland County Parks and Recreation; that I am acting solely as a volunteer; and that I will not receive any compensation for my volunteer activities. I also understand that because I am a volunteer and not an employee, I will not be eligible to participate in any employee benefit plans or programs and that I am not considered an employee. My position as a volunteer can be terminated at any time either by me or by Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission without notice for any reason or no reason.


In order to effectively carry out my volunteer duties, I agree to follow the rules applicable to Oakland County Parks and Recreation employees and to follow the direction of Oakland County Parks and Recreation management. I acknowledge that even though I am a volunteer, my volunteer time will be scheduled in advance and that I will comply with the schedule. Failure to be on time or otherwise comply with the schedule will result in my removal from the Volunteer Program.


As part of my participation in the Volunteer Program, I understand that I may be eligible for free and/or discounted passes or programs, pursuant to the rules, policies, and expectations established for the Volunteer Program. I acknowledge and agree that this is provided to me solely as an incidental benefit and is not intended as, nor does it constitute, compensation for services. The manner and amount of free and/or discounted passes or programs provided to volunteers may be changed at any time and without notice.


Waiver of Liability


In consideration of the Oakland County Parks and Recreation permitting me to participate in the Volunteer Program, I agree to this Waiver of Liability. I understand that as part of my volunteer duties I may be near potential hazards. I recognize and accept such dangers and assume all responsibility for and risk of bodily injury, death, property damage, whether known or unknown, and whether caused by my negligence or the negligence of employees, patrons or others. I agree to waive, release and discharge the County of Oakland, Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission, and the elected and appointed officials, officers, staff, agents, employees, volunteers (referred to collectively herein as the County) from all liability, damages, injuries, claims or demands on account of injury to me, including death, whether caused by the County, me, or any other individual arising out of or in any way connected to the operation of Oakland County Parks and Recreation and my acting as a volunteer.


I have read and voluntarily signed this Agreement and Waiver of Liability (collectively “Agreement”). This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement. There are no other agreements modifying its terms. I acknowledge that no one has made any representations to me that have not been expressly stated in this Agreement. Any modifications to this Agreement must be made in writing and signed by me and a duly authorized officer of the County and must specifically refer to and expressly amend this Agreement.
