Anthony offers an engaging, succinct overview of the information needed by industry leaders, attorneys, and professionals to ensure workers' rights are protected as the artificial intelligence landscape continues to rapidly evolve, focusing primarily on the use of AI in hiring and retention and its intersection with federal, state, and local law. 

In this presentation, Anthony May examines the implications of artificial intelligence (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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define artificial intelligence and provide examples of how AI is used in the workplace.
  • Identify several potential discriminatory uses of AI to hire, screen, and evaluate employees by examining individuals' rights protected under relevant federal anti-discrimination laws.
  • Understand some of the current legal efforts to curtail such discrimination at the global, federal, state, and local levels - as well as several lawsuits involving AI discriminating against protected classes.
  • Understand best practices for both employers and employees to ensure an employee's rights are not violated when using AI.
