Rule Full Text
The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection is proposing to add rules to implement new legislation related to the use of automated employment decision tools. The proposed rules would clarify the requirements for the use of automated employment decision tools within New York City, the notices to employees and candidates for employment regarding the use of the tool, the bias audit for the tool, and the required published results of the bias audit.
NOTE: This hearing was originally scheduled for October 24, but has been rescheduled due to technical difficulties. For full text of the rule and previous comments, see https://rules.cityofnewyork.us/rule/automated-employment-decision-tools-2/

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:
