Over the past two decades, technology has transformed our world and our workplaces. COVID-19 has only accelerated the implementation of technological change and innovation by employers. One significant development in the workplace is the introduction of artificial intelligence ("AI"), which includes technologies such as automated decision making ("ADM") and machine learning ("ML"). In light of these capabilities, it is wise for employers to stay abreast of the latest developments and opportunities – being an early adopter of new technology can often mean saved costs and a competitive advantage. Nonetheless, it is equally important for employers to be aware of the ethical and legal risks associated with these technologies, as a relatively recent and rapidly evolving phenomenon.
