Job Analysis, Personnel Selection, and the ADA
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
The ADA will change the way employers screen and hire applicants. The notion of essential functions is central to hiring under the ADA. We explore the meaning of essential functions, including changes in perspective due to the ADA, how to conduct a job analysis to provide information in determining essential functions, and the role of essential functions in selection. We conclude by noting some challenges for job analysis under the ADA and directions for research.
