The New York City Bias Audit Law (Local Law 144) regulates the use of automated employment decision tools (AEDT) for candidates and employees within New York city and requires that algorithm-based technologies for recruiting, hiring, or promotion be audited for bias before being used. In short, this law concerns you, if you are an employer or employment agency or software provider in New York City that builds or uses these tools.
The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) published its initial proposed rules in September 2022 and initially they would take effect on January 1, 2023. Due to concerns raised during the public comment period, including those raised by employers, employment agencies, law firms, AEDT developers and advocacy organizations, DCWP issued revised proposed rules and postponed enforcement for April, 15 2023. On April 6 2023, DCWP released final rules implementing Local Law 144 of 2021 and announced that enforcement will begin on July 5, 2023.
