KKL-JNF insures its activities and property with appropriate insurance, such as property insurance, employer liability insurance, third party insurance, liability insurance for officers, and the like. Every person who deals with volunteers in the organization has the responsibility to fill out forms as required that will constitute a guarantee of the volunteers' insurance.
The following are several points of emphasis regarding volunteers' insurance at KKL-JNF:
1. Regular volunteer at KKL-JNF
A volunteer at KKL-JNF sites is insured by the National Insurance Institute through the Ministry of Labor, and the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs. If someone is injured during his volunteer work, he will be recognized by the National Insurance Institute as a volunteer who as been injured in a work accident. The National Insurance Law provides such an injured party with all the rights of one who has had a work accident.
Every new/veteran volunteer must fill out the Volunteer Referral Form for the National Insurance Institute, and give a copy of it to the director of the Volunteers Department.
2. Temporary volunteers at KKL-JNF sites:
For a volunteer job of up to several hours in cleaning forests / pruning / collecting trimmed foliage, etc., which is done by soldiers, students and similar others, a list of names must be submitted in advance to the Community Forest coordinator in the region where the voluntarism is taking place, for registration as a National Insurance volunteer.
3. Insurance of those working in KKL-JNF's name
A volunteer working in KKL-JNF's name or on its behalf shall receive protection from the insurance company in case he is sued due to his voluntary activity in civil cases only (not criminal).
