US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched an initiative on artificial intelligence and algorithmic fairness

On 28 October 2021, the United States (US) Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) launched an artificial intelligence and algorithmic fairness initiative to determine if the tools used in employment decisions are compliant with federal civil rights laws. The initiative aims to consult stakeholders about algorithmic tools and their potential impact, gather intelligence on the design of employment-related technologies and identify the best practices. Finally, EEOC plans to issue technical assistance and guidelines to employers, employees and technology vendors regarding the use of artificial intelligence in employment decisions to ensure that these technologies are used fairly and in line with federal equal employment opportunity laws.
