Illinois Enacts Artificial Intelligence Employment Law

#artificialintelligence 

It's been a busy year for the Illinois General Assembly, which is well on its way to creating the most regulated state in the country when it comes to employment law. We have already seen the Illinois Workplace Transparency Act passed, which will change the way arbitration and confidentiality agreements work, and seen the Illinois Equal Pay Act modified. Now, Illinois has enacted the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act (AIVIA), which goes into effect on January 1, 2020. The AIVIA regulates how employers use artificial intelligence to analyze video recordings of job applicants' interviews during the hiring process. Further, employers may not share applicants' video interviews, except with those who necessarily must view the videos to evaluate the applicants' fitness for hire.
