AI Law on Employment Practices

Bias in AI has been an issue that has raised a lot of concerns. There have been instances where human bias has been carried over to AI algorithms and has impacted the decision-making process.  One area where it had an impact was in reviewing resumes and vetting out candidates.

In November 2021, New York City council passed a law on automated employment decision tools, which goes into effect from January 1st, 2023. The law prohibits the use of an automated employment decision tool to screen a candidate or employee for an employment decision unless:

  1. The tool has been the subject of a Bias Audit;
  2. The Bias Audit has been completed no more than one year before the use of the tool;
  3. A summary of the results of the most recent bias audit is made publicly available on the employer’s website before using the tool.
