That is SO last week

Last week at the SHRM Legislative Conference, EEOC Chair Jenny Yang both praised and cautioned employers in talking about HR technology.  In particular, Chair Yang said that some technology can reduce bias in the workplace, while other forms could lead to unlawful discrimination. She stated that the EEOC’s goal “…is to ensure that employment practices are designed to use data in a thoughtful way, to promote equal opportunity, and not exclude individuals for reasons that are not job-related and may be based on protected characteristics.”
