Unpacking New York City’s Law Regulating Automated Employment Decision Tools

Registration for this free webinar is currently open.

Date: July 21, 2022 (2:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT) 

A New York City law that is set to go into effect on January 1, 2023, will impose new requirements on employers who use machine learning, artificial intelligence, or other automated tools in their personnel selection processes. Similar laws are likely to crop up elsewhere in the United States. We’ll discuss eight pressing questions about the law as we unpack its implications for employers, applicants, and the field. 

Questions that will be discussed include:

  1. What does the law state? 
  2. Who is and is not covered by the law? 
  3. What selection practices are, or might be, considered automated employment decision tools?  
  4. What qualifies as a bias audit — and who qualifies as an independent auditor?  
  5. What information stemming from a bias audit must employers make available — and how?  
  6. What should employers be doing to prepare for the law’s enactment?  
  7. Can we expect to see similar legislation in other states?  
  8. How and when might we get clarity on the open questions related to the law – and what happens if clarity is not provided?
