Artificial intelligence is already disrupting operations across swaths of industries, and HR is no exception.
AI’s use cases in the HR space are evolving rapidly, from filtering and tracking job candidates to generating internal communications and analyzing facial expressions during video interviews. But it’s the use of AI in hiring that is drawing particular attention from regulators.
In 2023, New York City passed the nation’s first-ever law requiring employers to conduct annual bias audits of automated employment decision-making tools. Months later, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidance for employers about how to audit AI for employment discrimination.
Here we track the states, cities and other jurisdictions that have passed laws on the use of AI and other automated decision-making tools in the hiring process. We’ll offer a brief description of each law’s requirements, its effective date and a link to the original law, along with any relevant coverage from our journalists.
Readers may sort through the laws using the field on the left side of this page. The categories by which readers may sort include state name and area of jurisdiction (statewide vs. locality only).
