    Discover the precise language to include and the red flags that may spark legal trouble.

  • How to revise your job descriptions.

    COVID changed where, when, and how work is performed. Your job descriptions must be revised, too.

If a job description hasn’t been changed since the pandemic began, it’s a legal time bomb.

You may think of job descriptions as a recruitment tool. The truth is, they are legal documents. Outdated, inaccurate, or missing job descriptions can spark big-time trouble with various employment laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 

As most jobs changed in some way during the pandemic, your job descriptions also must change. You can no longer afford to push this task down on your “to do” list.  

On November 10, discover how to make job descriptions reflect appropriate job duties and to better protect your organization. Learn the practical steps and the correct language to draft effective descriptions for any position. Discover crucial updates and get a step-by-step walkthrough of how to approach refreshing your job descriptions.
