Adding a driver's license requirement to JD
Here's the situation: The Dept wants to add a valid driver's license requirement to a job description that has been around since 1997 w/o that requirement. The reason is that the job does occasionally drive to other locations for work (more so now than before due to lower staffing) and the dept wants the employee to use the company vehicle. The current job description does not specifiy this duty except for it is covered under "performs other duties as needed". Here's the concern - there is a long-tenured employee in the position who has been doing this driving work recently and using their personal vehicle and when told to use the company vehicle, they found out the employee does NOT have a driver's license currently. The employee did not advise the dept because it was not a requirement on the current job description. If they update the job description, won't this disqualify that employee? Any words of wisdom and/or guidance on how best to approach. :help: Thanks!
