Liability-avoidance specialist Olivia Goodkin laid out her case for Job Descriptions in her BLR webinar “Job Descriptions: How to Tackle Tricky Drafting Hurdles to Maximize Compliance and Effectiveness.” Ms. Goodkin saw four main advantages to job descriptions:
- They allow businesses to focus on what is really needed and identify qualified applicants.
- They assist in the determination of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
- They help in classification of employee as exempt or non-exempt from overtime laws.
- They assist in performance reviews and terminations.
