ADA and FEHA Compliant Job Descriptions in California: How to Write Effective, Legal Job Descriptions That Work
|Date / Time:
Job descriptions are a helpful and necessary part of every supervisor's and HR manager's life. When used correctly, they help keep everyone on track, morale up, and assist in creating a more motivated workforce.
But simple job descriptions can also be a Pandora's box of legal trouble.
The Americans with Disablities Act Amendments Act and its regulations mean that job descriptions, when poorly drafted, have the potential of causing a legal stir. In California, writing compliant job descriptions is even more complicated, thanks to amendments to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act affecting disability discrimination, reasonable accommodation, and the interactive process that took effect in December 2012.
Among key changes to the regulations is a stipulation that employers must keep job descriptions up to date. The commission pointed to concerns that employers are just re-using old, out-of-date descriptions over and over, which is something they are now keeping a close eye on.
