FASA CD-ROM Explains Risks of Hold Harmless Clauses

The “hold harmless” clause in a contract may look innocent, but could it compel your company to defend an expensive lawsuit resulting from someone else’s mistake?

In the Foundation of the American Subcontractors Association’s (FASA) latest multimedia CD-ROM, Sean Calvert, Esq., of the Albuquerque, NM-based law firm of Calvert Menicucci, P.C., discusses the ins-and-outs of hold harmless clauses in all their varieties, why customers want certain hold harmless language, and what that language really means.

Discover the consequences of agreeing to small changes in language that can have a big impact on your liability in “Hold Harmless or Hold Harmful? Limiting Your Liability for Others’ Mistakes.” This two-hour audio-visual resentation is viewable at a workstation or can be projected onto a screen or wall. This CD-ROM ($65 for ASA members/$95 for nonmembers) contains the audio-visual recording, a media player, and installation instructions.
