  • Description
    Legal issues with employers can begin sooner than you might realize – sometimes with the simple drafting of the job description. This CLE course will focus on the legal issues involved in drafting job descriptions and best practices for creating evidentiary documents which serve to defend employers in discrimination suits. Strategies for avoiding poorly written descriptions, requirements, a description’s relationship to “reasonable accommodation” under the ADA, key terms, FLSA wage and hourly issues and the job description as a legal document will all be addressed.
