In 2021, New York City enacted a measure that banned the use of Automated Employment Decision-Making Tools (“AEDT”) to (1) screen job candidates for employment, or (2) evaluate current employees for promotion, unless the tool has been subject to a “bias audit, conducted not more than one year prior to the use of the tool.”

Continuing its initiative regarding the use of data, automated processes, and artificial intelligence (“AI”), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) is holding a hearing on January 31, 2023 for examining the use of automated systems and AI in employment decisions.

This in-person hearing will begin at 10:00am EST on January 31 at the EEOC
