Exploring the Legal and Practical Implications of Using AI-Based Assessments in Hiring
Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have changed and continue to change the way we live, work and interact with each others. Advances in AI are also beginning to change the way that organizations assess and hire talent.
These changes are happening rapidly and with little guidance about how to effectively implement, interpret, and use scores produced from AI-based assessments to make hiring decisions that comply with our EEO laws and regulations.
This program provides an overview of the effective and lawful use of AI assessments. A panel of experts will discuss guidelines for evaluating and implementing AI-based tools for recruiting and hiring and highlight the legal implications of using AI-based assessments. The program will conclude with insights from Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Commissioner Keith Sonderling.
