April 4, 2014 – Job Descriptions and Classifications
Audits by the Department of Labor are on the rise. Many employers have incurred thousands of dollars in back pay and overtime due to their mis-classification of employees as "exempt" when they are really "non-exempt". Confusion about who is an "employee" and who is a "contractor", as well as incorrect calculations of overtime pay have also cost many dollars in back pay and fines. Learn how to protect your company from these fines and penalties. The starting point for pay is a proper job description system. Accurate and thorough job descriptions are foundational to hiring and employee development. Competencies (knowledge, skills, and abilities) key to each role should be identified and included in all job descriptions.
