  • Summary

    In March 2020, thousands of companies became “remote employers” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, many employers have turned to the use of technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI), in the recruitment and screening of applicants for employment. The use of AI, however, does not come without its own inherent risks. This session will review pertinent laws that apply to preemployment testing, guidelines for determining whether a particular test should be part of the hiring process, and preemployment procedures that might disproportionately exclude a certain class of individuals and therefore result in unconscious bias in the hiring process. The session will also provide “best practices” to use if implementing AI for recruiting and hiring.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Understand the laws, such as ADA, that pertain to preemployment testing and the use of AI in the screening process;
    • Gain insight into using preemployment testing to evaluate and measure knowledge and skills required by particular job or class of jobs;
    • Use examples to demonstrate how AI can be used in the hiring process to determine “right” fit, eliminate potential bias, and reduce screening time; and
    • Apply information presented to implement best practices.
