Training Overview

Legally-compliant job descriptions – get the facts now! Discover how you need to adapt to avoid liability.

Is your organization complying with the latest legislation? As staffing shortages abound and the pandemic persists, you must adhere to laws and regulations to set accurate expectations for employees and avoid undue liability for your organization. Inaccurate representations, missing information, or non-compliant language can land you in court. 

Job descriptions are helpful, plain-language tools that explain each position’s tasks, duties, functions, and responsibilities. They are used to recruit, determine salary levels, conduct performance reviews, clarify missions, establish titles and pay grades, and set reasonable accommodation controls.
