It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted a Tuesday Tip. This week we’ll look at the difference between waiver and waver. I’ve seen these words misused and confused more than once.

Waiver (noun) :

  • The act of not insisting on, some right, claim, or privilege.
  • A legal document releasing some requirement.
  • Something that releases a person from a requirement.

Waver (verb):

  • To fluctuate or vary
  • To shake or tremble
  • To sway back and forth; to totter or reel.
  • To be indecisive between choices; to feel or show doubt or indecision; to vacillate.
