Learn to Write Effective Job Descriptions that Identify All of the Job Requirements and Avoid Language that Increase Your Potential for Discrimination Claims.

Job descriptions are critical in the workplace. All too often, however, not much thought is put into what exactly should be in the job description. A poorly written and detailed job description will lead to employees saying "that's not my job" or to costly lawsuits. A well written job description lets your employees, a court, or jury know your expectations from the potential or current employee. Are you writing your job descriptions diligently and carefully? 

This session with expert speaker Susan Desmond will help you write job descriptions that identify all the essential job requirements and avoid language that leads to discrimination claims and preserve legal compliance.

This webinar will cover:

  • How to identify all of the job requirements in job descriptions (without being too lengthy)
  • Why job descriptions are the critical first step in the recruitment and hiring process
  • Avoiding language that can lead to discrimination claims
  • Identifying and highlighting the essential functions of the job
  • Understanding the role of the Americans with Disabilities Act in drafting job descriptions
  • Ensuring that the at will employment relationship is preserved in job descriptions
