Recently, The Snow Removal Service Liability Limitation Act was signed into law in Illinois.
What does this mean?
The Snow Magazine (http://
says that “This law now makes indemnification agreements and hold-harmless language passing liability from the property owner or property managers to the contractor, null and void in Illinois”. Additionally, the ASCA (Accredited Snow Contractors Association) has succeeded in getting its Bill introduced in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Indiana. The Snow Industry highlights the importance of property owners hiring qualified snow contractors who actually document their services and also using high quality icemelters, such as XYNYTH’s safe, powerful and environmentally friendly product line.
