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

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT:  Learn how to accurately draft, revise and use job descriptions when making important employment-related decisions.

While writing and reviewing job descriptions might seem like one of the more tedious tasks for HR, the importance of this process can’t be understated. A well-written and up-to-date job description is meant to identify the skills, education and experience an employee must possess in order to be qualified for a particular job and the essential duties and responsibilities of that position.

That information often serves as the basis for many HR decisions, such as whether someone is qualified for a position they have applied for, whether reasonable accommodations can be made for a disabled candidate or employee, and whether an employee is properly classified as exempt or nonexempt from overtime pay.  Job descriptions are also important when it comes to assessing an employee’s ability to return to work after a leave of absence. Each of these determinations can lead to legal liability for employers. Accordingly, it is critical that job descriptions are drafted properly and updated on a regular basis.

Use this on-demand webinar on how to draft and update job descriptions. An expert employment attorney will walk you through the legal issues and provide much-needed insight on how accurately draft and update your job descriptions.

After this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

    • Correctly and accurately draft job descriptions—ensure they identify all of the essential job functions
    • Use meaningful language and learn what to keep in and what to leave out
    • Review and update existing job descriptions on a regular basis—don’t rely on older versions
    • Use job descriptions as a resource in assessing whether to hire or promote, properly classify an employee under the FLSA, whether to grant accommodations, and whether to permit an employee to remain on the job or to return from a leave of absence
    • And much more!
