New York Regulates the Use of AI-Driven Hiring
By: Brenna Harman
New York City published final regulations regarding the use of AI-driven hiring tools, and enforcement of the laws went into effect on July 5, 2023. Local Law 144 (“NYC 144”) requires any automated employment decision tool (AEDT) to be audited annually. The audits are performed to check for bias that may be intentionally or unintentionally within the systems. The employer must determine if they are using an AEDT, perform the audit, publish a public summary of the audit, and provide certain notices to applicants or employees who are subject to screening by the tool.
