What is the purpose of this program?
The NLADA Insurance Program special edition of My Risk Management Policies was developed in partnership with the Nonprofit Risk Management Center and the NLADA Insurance Program to enable the creation of custom workplace policies, education and materials.
The website is designed exclusively for NLADA Insureds to keep premiums low, prevent claims and improve coverage by managing risk in the workplace.
I would like to share these policies with colleagues from other organizations. Am I able to do so?
Access to the policies on this site is an exclusive benefit to NLADA Insurance Program member insureds. Sharing these policies with others is prohibited.
What is the benefit of creating my own policy, step by step, versus using another organization's policy I found online?
Each day, countless leaders find “sample” policies online and begin using them as policies for their organization. Unfortunately, while easy to find, a “sample” policy found in a ten-second web search is rarely suited to your organization’s special circumstances. Instead of addressing a risk, you may be increasing your exposure to loss by adopting an ill-suited policy, or a policy that is so complicated your organization is unable to follow the policy’s terms to a “t.” Policies that have been adopted but aren’t followed will seriously weaken the defense of a claim or lawsuit against your organization. The NLADA Insurance Program special edition of My Risk Management Policies helps you create sound policies that are suited to your organization and that have been customized to reflect the specialized needs of NLADA Insurance Program Insureds. By using this tool you’ll avoid the common mistake of using an overly complex or otherwise unsuitable policy.
I would like to use the program for my organization, but anticipate that several members of the management team will use the tool to create policies. Does each staff member need a separate log-in ID and password?
No. Our expectation is that this website will be used for team members working for the same organization. To ensure the most efficient use of the program, simply provide those staff authorized to create and/or edit policies with your log-in information.
How many policies may I choose from and what are their titles?
You may access as many policies as you choose. New policies will be added on an ongoing basis. Some of them are listed below.
I need to create some policies for which there aren't any templates. Can you help?
Yes! Please send the names or a description of the policies you need to email@example.com and we will do our best to upload templates for your use. We will notify you to let you know when they are ready.
My organization is not insured by the NLADA Insurance Program. How can I learn more?
Visit www.nlada.org/Insurance or call 202) 452-9870 or (800) 725-4513.
When I paste in a new section the font is different from the template language in the system. Is there a way to avoid this?
Yes. When pasting in text from other programs (e.g., Word, WordPerfect, Excel, etc.) the font selections from those programs automatically accompany the pasted text. To avoid this and ensure a clean look to your new policies, paste text from your existing software into NotePad, and then paste the text from NotePad into My Risk Management Policies. The new text will be imported without any font attributes and will automatically be formatted to match the font style and size in My Risk Management Policies.
