ADA-Compliant Job Descriptions: Outlining Essential Functions to Avoid Disability Discrimination Entanglements
|Date / Time:
When the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act and its regulations went into effect, the focus turned to the essential functions of a job, putting job descriptions squarely in the spotlight.
Done right, job descriptions keep managers, supervisors, and employees on track. They can also boost employee morale and create a more motivated workforce. Done wrong, they open employers up to legal liability, confusion, and lower productivity.
To keep your organization up to date and free from costly legal entanglements, you need to know the best strategies for ensuring job descriptions accurately and properly outline the essential functions and requirements of the position - and don't create compliance conflicts with the ADA.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- How to strike a good balance between providing the right amount of detail
- Job description dos and don'ts, including what you absolutely should include and what you should keep out
- How to define functions that are essential to a given job - and why this is so important
- How your job descriptions can affect FMLA and workers' compensation-related claims
- Signs that your current job descriptions may be out of date
- The process to engage in when creating new job descriptions to replace those outdated ones
- How to spot potentially damaging job description language so you can avoid ADA entanglements
- The types of information an EEOC investigator, a judge, or a jury will keep in the back of their minds when reviewing job descriptions
- How a job description differs from a job task analysis - and what the difference means from a practical standpoint
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn the dos and don'ts of writing effective job descriptions. Register now for this interactive event risk-free.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
