Not to jinx us, but it seems like more and more small businesses are creatively reopening their doors to keep serving their clients.
Here in San Diego, haircuts have moved outside and beach disco parties happen at a distance.
What’s it like where you are?
Have you been aching to return to teaching yoga or wanting to go back to hosting your monthly meet-ups?
But, have a few too many what-ifs holding you back from taking action?
I am the Chief Problem Solver in resolving “what-if” situations so you can get back to growing your business and serving your clients.
Step 1: Identify local government rules and stick to them.
Step 2: Create opening procedures for your business that comply with CDC recommendations.
Step 3: Communicate your policies and procedures with your clients, including sharing your Pre-Appointment Questionnaire for any in-person sessions.
Step 4: Use a COVID-19 specific Liability Waiver to limit your responsibility if your client contracts COVID-19 from interacting with your business.
Step 5: Reopen your doors.
The main thing you need in place is a liability waiver, and that’s probably why you are worried about reopening.
You can’t solve the global pandemic or make sure that each of your clients is living like the boy in the plastic bubble.
A liability waiver is a simple, familiar, and cost-effective first step that your business can take to protect against potential liability for exposure claims. It will release your business from legal responsibility if your customers get injured while buying your business’ products or receiving your business’ services.
…. Let me pause, that was getting a bit too lawyer-y….
You are already familiar with liability waivers and have likely signed one when joining a gym, renting a boat, or going skydiving (sorry, mom!)
Basically, it is a written contract between your client and your business where your client will acknowledge the risks of doing business with you.
The important thing now is to get a COVID-19 specific liability waiver in place so your client agrees to waive the right to sue you if they work with you and get infected with COVID-19. This is especially important if you work in-person with clients.
Well, as luck would have it, I’ve created one just for you!
Using the Legal Umbrella’s Pre-Appointment Questionnaire and COVID-19 Liability Waiver, your clients will become aware of the risks associated with the current pandemic and know that you take their health and well-being as well as the health and well-being of your business very seriously.
You’ll be able to reopen worry-free, without the weight of resolving the global pandemic on your shoulders.
