Essentials of Employee Handbooks and Job Descriptions (.6 CEUs)   NEW!

Employee handbooks and job descriptions are two key pieces of HR documentation. They communicate policies and procedures, outline job requirements used for recruiting and ADA accommodation, and can be critical components when legal issues arise. In this interactive training we’ll start with job descriptions. We'll look at various methods for job analysis, learn what needs to be included, determine essential versus non-essential job tasks, discover several suggested formats, and learn how to determine physical requirements for each job. In the second half of the class we’ll review best practices for employee handbooks: what policies to include, what not to include, suggested phrasing from the NLRB and EEOC, and how to ensure your handbook stays relevant. Students should bring their organization’s handbook and at least one sample job description to class to use in exercises. Recommended text: Robert L. Mathis and John H.
