Artificial Intelligence and Employment Discrimination Law

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 9:20 AM PDT  
Elite 1-3  

From self-driving cars to spam filters to the creation of fake songs, one thing is certain: the robots have landed. Although artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for decades, it has recently emerged as one of the biggest trending topics in all facets of daily life. Specifically in the employment realm, AI is being used increasingly by employers to screen applicants and evaluate employees. But with great power comes great responsibility, and while AI can be used effectively and efficiently, it can also serve as a conduit for discrimination—whether intentional or not.

In this presentation, Anthony examines the implications of AI in employment as it pertains to disability, race, age, and gender discrimination, among other protected classes, in all facets of employment, including in the hiring process and employment productivity evaluations. He also discusses the DOJ’s and EEOC’s guidelines to prevent discrimination through an employer’s use of AI and other emergent technologies and measures taken to enforce compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws.

As with many other trends before, the law is slow to keep up with the increasing use of AI in various ways. This hour-long presentation ensures attorneys, activists, community leaders, and individuals on the forefront of civil rights are not left behind. It offers an engaging, succinct overview of the information needed to ensure the workers’ rights are protected as the AI landscape continues to rapidly evolve.
