    Job Descriptions and Announcements: New Rules and Best Practices

    Thursday, August 25 | 11:00a-12:00p

    Presenter: Sean M. Worley, Stokes Lawrence P.S.

    Has it been a while since you reviewed your employees' job descriptions? Well-constructed job descriptions are essential for employee productivity, retaining workers, being competitive, and complying with wage and hour laws. They also are great tools to help ensure consistent performance standards.

    Join us for our next webinar, Job Descriptions, and Announcements: New Rules and Best Practices, on August 25. We will discuss the core components of a solid job description and review the latest changes in Washington state law for Washington members, taking effect in January 2023.

    Sean Worley, attorney at Stokes Lawrence, will join us to describe the latest tips and information on these topics.

    Please email questions you would like to see covered during this webinar to Scott Dilley. We will also cover Q&A already received from members and answer your questions live.

    This webinar is included with your membership, but you must register to save your spot.
