I am writing a "waiver" that i want to have people sign for when i have them do something for my company. I have written up the waiver and just want to know if it would pass in court and cover my *** legally. However, i do not feel like paying a lawyer to look it over and whatnot...just yet.

Are there any free online legal advice sites/forums/lawyers that you may know of out there?

Look in your local yellow pages. There is usually a Free Legal Counseling Service that can hook you up with a legal specialist in the area you are seeking information about.

I have used this kind of service before to get 1 hr free counseling. I suppose it depends of what work it is they will be doing for your company. For example, the purchase of a ticket to a MLB baseball game has a clause exempting a baseball team from liability if a fan gets hit by a baseball which is usually on the ticket.

A photographer should usually get a persons signature to release a photo of them is another example of permission sought to take an action that would otherwise be disallowed by law. The person signing the waiver reliquishes the right to sue.

I would first look up indemity and waiver at Wikipedia to be sure about those concepts before talking to any lawyer for counseling free or otherwise.

You also might benefit from a Google search for: waiver clause boiler plate
and look up any terms you are not familiar about before consulting a lawyer.
