Writing effective Job Descriptions

        After several months in a position, most employees, upon review of their job description find that the job description is not at all what they do on a daily basis. In fact, some of the tasks the employer is expecting them to perform are never even mentioned in the job description. This seminar will help employers develop job descriptions which detail the Essential Job Functions as well as other functions required of the employee. We will look at job descriptions and how they relate to Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act and we will discuss how an in accurate job description may be leaving the employer vulnerable to legal action by an employee. Discussion will also focus on the link between the job description and an employee’s performance appraisal. This seminar is a must for all child care professionals involved in the hiring, reviewing and termination of employees.
