|Model Job Descriptions for Public Works
Good job descriptions produce important benefits. They help prospective and current employees better understand the expectations of the job. Supervisors have additional guidelines to hire, promote, and supervise for maximum effectiveness. Human resource professionals have the information to better recruit, examine, and select qualified candidates for positions.
In the 1990s, job descriptions became more important than ever. One contributing factor was the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the ADA, job descriptions, particularly the lists of duties and responsibilities, took on new significance. In the event of an ADA challenge, employers must be able to show that employment decisions are based solely on the applicant's ability to perform the essential functions of the job, with or without reasonable accommodation. Related to the essential functions or duties are the tools and equipment used to perform the essential job functions, the physical demands of the job duties, and the environment in which the duties are performed.
A properly developed job description, prepared before advertising and interviewing, can be used as evidence of the essential functions which must be performed by the employee. Developed by local government managers, public works practitioners, HR experts and legal counsel, LGI's Model Job Descriptions work with your existing word processor. You simply retrieve the desired job description from the disk and cut and paste it to fit your unique circumstances.
