OLRB Human Resources Law Series: Job Descriptions

Many business owners and HR professionals overlook the benefits that can be derived from a properly-written job description.  Though its most-basic function is to act as a hiring tool to attract potential candidates, a proper job description also sets reasonable employee expectations for the position, defines what governs employee success in the position, and serves as a basis for future performance evaluations.

To draft a proper job description, you should start by examining the position’s role within the organization.  The job description should include all essential job functions, while containing no functions that are not relevant to the position.  Perhaps most notably, business owners and HR professionals must understand that a job description is a living document.  Descriptions should be reviewed and updated annually to ensure that they properly reflect changes in the employee’s role within the organization.

OLRB’s labor and employment attorneys can help your business be proactive in structuring and drafting your human resource materials to lessen the risk of employment litigation.  Please contact Gregory A. Goetz via telephone at (614) 716-0500, or via e-mail at [email protected] to discuss how OLRB can assist your business.
