This agreement documents the legally binding terms and conditions attached to the use of the site and services of Life Work Care.  By using, viewing, or accessing the site or services in any way, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service. 

Terms of Participation

Any employee or independent contractor, along with their immediate families, are allowed to make use of this optional care provided by Life Work Care.

Intellectual Property 

The Life Work Care website contains original content as well as referral resources. 

All original content is the sole property of Life Work Care and as such is fully protected by the appropriate international copyright and other intellectual property rights laws.   

All outside resources are the copyright of those holding the copyright and Life Work Care offers the resource referrals as a helpful guide not as a guarantee of content. 

Limitation of Liability

Life Work Care is a purely voluntary activity.  Participants acknowledge this is NOT PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING.  Support is offered for everyday life and work challenges.  Life Work Care is NOT a licensed counseling resource.  Any professional counseling assistance must be sought elsewhere.

Participants acknowledge teaching, guidance and resources might come from a Biblical worldview but are open to all regardless of religious affiliation or non-affiliation. Many of our volunteers will be Christian and may share their faith perspective.  Another faith tradition may be requested where possible.

Participants acknowledge they are free to accept or reject any resources offered or referrals for additional services provided.

Participation in speaking with a volunteer, or use of any Life Work Care resources, will not have any bearing on his or her business affiliation. 

Those who serve on the Life Work Care team are volunteers, regardless of workplace affiliation.

All guidance and any recommendations offered are not to be construed as professional advice or counsel.  Participants acknowledge and hold Life Work Care harmless for any financial problems, legal problems, relational problems or any other types of negative issues stemming from the sole decision of the participant.

Participants may voluntarily submit prayer requests. Though many Life.Work.Care. volunteers believe in prayer, they will not require or compel prayer. Any submitted prayer request will be kept confidential in line with the confidentiality terms below. 

Confidentiality

Participants may request volunteers within Life Work Care keep certain information confidential to the extent possible.  While Life Work Care will make reasonable efforts to not disclose this information outside of Life Work Care, individuals should understand and agree that there are certain instances in which volunteers may be required to, or they may in their sole discretion decide to, disclose this information to others.  These instances may include, without limitation: 

  • If I threaten to hurt myself or someone else

  • If I disclose any involvement in any illegal matter

  • If there exists any legal, moral, or ethical obligation to disclose or further investigate the information provided (as determined by Life Work Care or any of its volunteers' sole discretion)

Termination

Violation of these terms and conditions will result in immediate termination from membership and may result in other appropriate civil or criminal actions. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Any alleged violations of this agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the 2000 Revised Uniform Arbitration Act. 

Governing Law

This Agreement is governed in accordance with the laws of North Carolina, United States.
