Job descriptions serve multiple purposes within an organization. They have a key role in shaping recruitment and selection. They are a tool for training and developing employees. They clarify performance evaluation criteria, and are used in compensation studies and planning.

Courts and agencies also use them to determine whether an employer is complying with wage and hour law.
