- Methods to assure that job descriptions do not become obsolete.
- How to recognize when jobs are defined too narrowly
- Which vague language most often leads to lawsuits

- Key words that will help ensure ADA compliance
- How to know if a duty is really “essential” and how “essential functions” are generally defined
