In this CompDoctor article, Jim Fox and Bruce Lawson answer the following question about the importance of using minimum requirements in job descriptions: We are completing a comprehensive job classification study and are in the process of drafting new job descriptions and class specifications for each job in the new structure. When we discuss the process with our department heads and employee representatives, we meet some resistance to the minimum qualifications we have proposed. The general reaction is that our minimum qualifications are too low, which leads to concerns that we will end up getting unqualified applicants. Employee comments are focused on the fact that they had to have higher qualifications when they were hired, and they want to know why we are dumbing down the requirements. Can you share some insights as to what the minimum qualifications are designed to do and why they are important?

Standard liability and property insurance policies have excluded coverage for claims associated with pollution events since 1985, leaving significant coverage gaps in insurance programs throughout the U.S. Although there has been a market for pollution liability insurance since 1979, until recently, coverage was very narrow, limits were low and premiums were often not cost effective.
