Job Descriptions - Are They Required by Law
hrjbbhr 1 Post
In all my research, I have not found any legal citation (specific law, regulation, administrative code, etc.) requiring employers to have job descriptions. Has anyone else come across a specific legal requirement for job descriptions?
Thanks for your response BarbieW! I agree that if the JD isn't well written it could cause more problems than just not having them.
I'm with Barbie. There's no law that says that you need them, but they are a good thing to have, especially if you're ever faced with an ADA or FLSA claim. Not only that, but practically they're good to have - they can help you recruit and hire the best qualified applicant and give an applicant an accurate idea of what the job involves.
