Civil Liability Reform and the Not For Profit Sector in Australia
Katter, Norman A. (2005) Civil Liability Reform and the Not For Profit Sector in Australia. Third Sector Review, 11(2), pp. 137-147.
Legislative policy, underpinned by public sentiment, has traditionally sought to encourage philanthropy, charity and volunteer work, by some measure of legal protection for those engaged in such activities. Statutory initiatives in the area of civil liability reform have widened in general the ambit of this legislative protection for non-profit organisations and individuals engaged in philanthropic works.
These legislative reforms have been implemented throughout Australia. The focus of this paper are those statutory provisions on civil liability, particularly relevant to the non-profit sector.
