Drafting and Updating Job Descriptions: Essential Best Practices to Ensure Compliance with Changing Employment Laws - On-Demand

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 a crucially important one.

If a job’s essential functions are poorly defined or outdated, it can be difficult to achieve full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and many other employment-related laws. This means well-written and up-to-date job descriptions are critical when it comes to recruiting, promoting, and classifying employees, conducting performance reviews, assessing leave requests, providing reasonable accommodations, etc.

Use this on-demand webinar when employment attorney Erica Flores will explain how to draft new job descriptions and update existing job descriptions that will help you build a stronger workforce and maintain legal compliance.

After attending this webinar, you will be able 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)
  • Identify what information to keep in and what to leave out
  • Define the “essential functions” of each position
  • 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!
