Job descriptions help to identify all of the necessary requirements of the positions and how the employee is classified under the FLSA and help with ADA Compliance. Well written job descriptions should outline:
- The specific duties of the position (Main & secondary)
- Skills required
- Physical demands and capabilities
- Educational/training prerequisites and expectations
- Working conditions
- Supervisory responsibilities
- Behavioral traits
Every individual should be given the opportunity to review the job description at the time of applying for a particular position.
Well written job descriptions will provide your basis for performance appraisals, action plans and expectations of the employee and the position for all involved.
All job descriptions are customized based on the position and organization; and will allow for cross-training within the organization and other duties as required.
All positions are assessed to identify what the employee is actually doing vs. what they are supposed to be doing. Training and position alignment can be outlined as well as organizational analysis to determine overlap or gaps in workload.
