Periodically reviewing and updating job descriptions

It is intended to provide a clear picture of the position’s role within the organization.

If the job has undergone substantial evolution, not updating the job description will not only lead to less qualified new hires, but could even open you up to legal troubles.

If someone is hired under the pretense of performing a certain set of tasks, and then is let go due to their inability to perform additional tasks not identified up front in the job description, they may have cause to sue.

Whenever a job’s tasks and responsibilities get changed, the job description needs to be immediately updated to reflect those tweaks.
