About This Course:
Writing and updating job descriptions can seem like a tedious and never ending task for HR. But it’s crucially important.

Well-written and up-to-date job descriptions are critical when it comes to recruiting, promoting, classifying employees, conducting performance reviews, and providing reasonable accommodations. If a job’s essential functions are poorly defined or outdated, it can be difficult to achieve full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Join us when employment attorney Susan Fentin will explain how to accurately draft new job descriptions and update existing job descriptions.

You’ll learn how to:
  • Correctly and accurately draft job descriptions, so you can ensure they define exactly what the job is
  • Separate the job description from the individual currently performing the job (the two can oftentimes be very different)
  • Use correct language and learn what to keep in and what to leave out
  • Review and update existing job descriptions—don’t simply rely on older versions
  • Define the “essential functions” of each position
  • Use job descriptions in assessing whether to hire or promote, based on an individual’s skill set
  • Create job descriptions that will support you when you have to make a decision regarding ADA claims for accommodation or other issues
  • Correctly classify employees and avoid legal issues regarding overtime
  • And much more!
