The pandemic has wreaked havoc on staffing models in most industries. Companies are increasingly using subcontractors, staffing companies, professional employer organizations, and independent contractors to fill the gaps in their workforce. While contingent workers can provide temporary or long-term help, the legal relationship among the workers, the companies that supply or refer the workers, and the hiring entities has the potential to create a joint employment relationship, as well as other liability risks for everyone involved. In this month’s webinar, the speakers will address these issues and provide proactive strategies for companies to consider as they manage these complex relationships.

On May 12, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the U.S. Department of Justice issued its first guidance on the use of software, algorithms, and artificial intelligence (AI) to make hiring and other employment decisions. The guidance focuses on the risk that the use of AI and algorithmic processes to make employment decisions could result in unlawful discrimination against applicants and employees with disabilities. Our speakers will discuss the guidance’s key provisions and best practices that employers may want to consider to ensure that these tools do not disadvantage individuals with disabilities in ways that may violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.
