The increasing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning as part of employment decisions and workplace management has drawn the attention of legislators and regulators. New York City’s Local Law 144, which regulates “automated employment decision tools” is the first law in the nation to require such tools be subjected to “bias audits” to root out discriminatory impact along with a variety of other requirements aimed at transparency in the use of such AI tools.  Employers subject to these New York City requirements should tune in to learn best practices for compliance with this developing area of law.
