Job Descriptions are Old Fashioned and No Longer Useful. Not!

 

During this webinar, attendees will learn the basics of documenting relevant job information in order to support HR decisions concerning performance management, employee development, reasonable ADA accommodation and classification.

If yours is like most organizations, it might be a while since you thought about job descriptions or perhaps even looked at them. This can be a big mistake. Job descriptions are your first line of defense against discrimination charges, violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and even classification claims under FLSA. If they're not updated, inaccurate or too broad, they can hurt your defense. Be prepared with guidance from our experts.

With the increase of violent activity, employers need to be concerned about the degree to which they are prepared to respond to an incident of violence. Current policies and procedures need to be reviewed for effectiveness while all employees from the ground up should be well versed in what to do in the event of an act of violence. In addition, front line supervisors are key players in planning and prevention and can benefit from conflict management training.
