Drafting and Updating Job Descriptions: Why You Need Them, What to Include, and What to Leave Out

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid legal missteps by reviewing and updating your job descriptions.


 

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, and 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 If a job’s essential functions are poorly defined or outdated, it can be difficult to achieve full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Use this on-demand webinar, when employment attorney Kimberly Klimczuk 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 to 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 the interactive process when evaluating requests for reasonable accommodations under the ADA
  • Correctly classify employees and avoid legal issues regarding overtime
  • And much more!
