Job Descriptions

Written by 

job descriptions

Are your job descriptions complete? Up to date? Compliant with recent regulatory requirements? Well, you’re not alone if you can’t answer "Absolutely yes!"

In fact, some businesses still question whether job descriptions are really necessary, so they don’t even have them. Or, since getting them written is not in the budget, they’re given to managers to write and, well, you know what happens. But, it's easy to understand why. Good, legally sound job descriptions are difficult to do.

Without these in place, you will end up paying for them—one way or another. Because at some point, your job descriptions (in whatever state they are in) will be scrutinized by regulatory agencies. Will they be a liability or a good defense?

A well written job description is your first defense for compliance in:

    • Equal employment (job-relatedness, bona fide occupational qualifications and reasonable accommodation process).
    • Equal pay (skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions), and comparable worth.
    • Wage and hour laws and overtime eligibility (exempt vs. nonexempt work).
    • Work performance issues.
    • Work place safety (work hazards and mitigation).

Reviewing/revising Job descriptions can also:

      • Help identify redundancies in jobs.
      • Streamline work processes.
      • Spot ill-advised content and work controls that unnecessarily limit or inhibit constructive working relationships and create company liability.
      • Reduce personnel costs.
      • Increase productivity and employee empowerment.
      • Enhance job satisfaction.
      • Provide greater scheduling flexibility for the employee.

So, if you are looking for how to get the job done, CMC can help. We can revise/edit your work, train managers in how to write them, or do the full analysis and job description work for you. CMC’s descriptions include job summary, and clear, concise statements regarding the responsibilities and essential duties of the position. Key qualifications of the job as well as specific credentials and skill are designed to be easily identified. CMC additionally provides documentation for exempt/nonexempt status under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Don’t wait to get started.
