Job descriptions are important for every business and are critical to assure compliance with employment regulations.

Job descriptions provide guidance for FLSA classification, recruitment, training, compensation, and for completing performance evaluations.

What You'll Learn:

* Understand the importance of job descriptions and how to ensure they are compliant.

* Common mistakes on job descriptions: What should and should not be included.

* Steps to creating a properly written and defensible job description that clearly identifies job functions and requirements.

* How to utilize the job description to designate exempt or non-exempt status for a position.

* Why identifying the "essential job functions" is a critical part of a job description.

* Legal ramifications organizations may face if they do not have up to date job descriptions.
