It’s time for employers to start preparing for legislation recently signed into law in Illinois, the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act. The new law, which takes effect on January 1, 2020, regulates Illinois employers’ use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the interview and hiring process.
Although California does not have a specific biometric privacy law like Illinois’s 2008 Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) or its recently enacted 2019 Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act (AIVIA), stay tuned for the impact of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which goes into effect on January 1, 2020. The CCPA will directly affect how certain employers use biometric data in the workplace.
Legislatures across the country are racing to keep up with the ever-expanding uses of artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace. While to date much of the focus has been on ethical uses of AI, disclosures requirements, and informed consent (e.g., the Illinois 2019 Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act), the California legislature recently took the bold move of promoting AI as a tool to reduce bias and discrimination in hiring and employment.
Over the past year, the popularity of digital workplace apps (that is, mobile applications used by companies to facilitate interactions with, and between, employees) has grown exponentially.
You have probably heard the phrases “fourth industrial revolution” and the “future of work.” Both refer to changes in the way people live, work, and relate to one another due to rapid developments in technology. Here are five things you should know about advanced technologies and the workplace.
On April 30, 2019, Maryland governor Larry Hogan approved a series of amendments to the Maryland Personal Information Protection Act. The amendments, effective October 1, 2019, impact data breach obligations imposed on businesses that “maintain” computerized data containing personal information.
More and more organizations are beginning to use or expand their use of artificial intelligence (AI) tools and services in the workplace. Despite AI’s proven potential for enhancing efficiency and decision-making, it has raised a host of issues in the workplace which, in turn, have prompted an array of federal and state regulatory efforts that are likely to increase in the near future.
In February 2019, President Trump signed an executive order titled “Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence,” also known as the American AI Initiative, that aims to increase the use of artificial intelligence (AI) nationwide.
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently held two town-hall meetings to discuss compliance issues relevant to federal contractors and subcontractors in the technology sector.
The Illinois Supreme Court issued its long-awaited ruling in Rosenbach and reversed the appellate court’s decision that technical violations of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA” or “Act”) without “some actual injury or harm” are not actionable.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new law that California Governor Jerry Brown signed on June 28, 2018, and will become effective on January 1, 2020. Amendments to the law are still being proposed, and the law will likely be amended and clarified.
As most of the American public, and indeed the world at large, watches President-elect Donald Trump in an effort to discern what his specific plans will be upon taking office, one of the groups that will be watching with particular interest is the high-tech sector. At the moment, and for some time into the future, President-elect Trump is going to be drinking from the proverbial fire hose when it comes to the details of public policy. While he comes into office with strongly held views and clearly espoused positions on a range of immigration issues, most of those are aimed at enforcement and border security—to wit, his pledge to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and to deport millions of undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Less fully formed—or at least less fully discussed and vetted—are the President-elect’s specific intentions with regard to business immigration. With ongoing reliance on a steady supply of highly educated and highly skilled foreign professionals to fuel their growth and innovation, technology companies from Silicon Valley to Boston and in virtually every city in between are poring over President-elect Trump’s various statements and appointments in order to prepare for what is to come.
