Writing Job Descriptions

Receive strategies on how to write an accurate job description and how to avoid various legal pitfalls.

Employers encounter many situations where it is critical to convey a clear understanding of an employee's job duties. If an employer does not prepare an adequate job description before the employee is hired, it may face liability for disability discrimination and failure to accommodate, interference with FMLA rights, and increased workers' compensation costs. This topic will explain how to identify essential functions and write effective job descriptions that can be used to limit the risk of liability.
