Third Thursday: Risks and Benefits of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Recruiting, Hiring, and Employment

March 28, 2019 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

Employers are increasingly seeking to leverage technology that will allow them to access broader and deeper talent pools, aggregate and assess data about applicants and employees from various sources, and make better hiring and retention decisions.  While artificial intelligence and predictive analytics can provide employers many benefits, use of data analytics can pose new legal risks for employers, including risks of discrimination claims for disparate treatment and disparate impact.  
During this webinar, we will discuss examples of the emerging uses of big data in the workplace.  We will focus on the technologies employers are using in their recruiting and employment practices, and the benefits those technologies provide.  We will also address the various risks that this technology poses, address best practices to mitigate these risks, and highlight existing litigations that are challenging some of the uses of big data by employers.
