Jan 26th Class Reflection

Today in class we finished our discussion on chapter 3. The most important thing to remember to avoid possible discrimination issues is to base all decisions on abilities and performance. The only time that discrimination is accepted is in the case of a bona-fide occupational qualification an example used was the Hooters example.
The last section we covered in chapter 3 was sexual harassment. We watched a clip of The Office to illustrate the point.
Then we began our discussion on Chapter 4 specifically Job Analysis. HRM's create job descriptions and job specifications (focus on Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Other Characteristics) from job analysis (focus on Task, Responsibilities, and Duties). Also the job analysis will lead into all of the following area; work redesign, human resource planning, selection, training, performance appraisal, career planning, and job evaluation.
