Job descriptions are critical for both practical and legal reasons. They are an essential tool in developing hiring criteria and navigating the candidate selection process. Job descriptions can also be very useful for ascertaining return to work/light duty assignments in workers’ compensation cases.
On the other hand, improperly prepared descriptions, or ones that are used in a disparate manner can land an employer (and its supervisors) in legal hot water with both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In this practical webinar, you will learn about the role of job descriptions in the employment field, including:
The designation of “safety sensitive” positions
Determining essential job functions for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Resolving disputes under collective bargaining agreements
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
Avoid disputes between employees related to their area of duty
Clarify positions for collective bargaining unit purposes
Determine the appropriate amount of compensation
Identify which positions can be classified as exempt for FLSA
Avoid claims of disparate treatment
Delineate “safety sensitive positions” for purposes of “return to work” in worker’s comp cases and under some state medical cannabis laws
Identify “essential job functions” for analysis under ADA and for purposes of reasonable accommodation
