    To DCWP,

    My name is Camille Carlton, and I am submitting this comment on behalf of myself, Siddarth Srinivasan, and Michael Yang.

    We are a group of Aspen Institute technology fellows who have spent the last few months developing recommendations on how the NYC Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) can improve the notification requirements of this new hiring law. Implementing notifications correctly is critical to upholding the intent of the notifications portion of the law — which is to ensure that thousands of NYC job applicants know when they might have been discriminated against by automated tools.

    We request that DCWP issue clearer guidance, including templates, on how employers can comply with the notification requirements of the law.

    Specifically, DCWP should (1) establish specific rules for employers regarding what, when, and how to disclose information about the use of an automated employment decision tool, and (2) establish data disclosure standards. DCWP should also supply employers with a list of frequently asked questions and other educational resources to help them comply with this new law.

    We provide more detailed recommendations on implementing the notice requirements of the law in the attached Playbook and at:

    Thank you for your consideration.
