Rob Crandall, Partner in our Labor & Employment practice in Los Angeles, is presenting at the ABA National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law on "Big Data and People Analytics: The Impact of Predictive Analytics on Traditional Employment Decisions." The event takes place at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square on April 11th - 13th. Joining Rob during his session are professionals from Epstein Becker and Outten & Golden. A brief description of the presentation is below:

Predictive analytics have revolutionized marketing practices in corporate America, and human resources departments increasingly are looking to apply similar analytical processes to functions under their control. These "people analytics" techniques take many forms--from text mining and machine learning to robotic process automation--with the goal of streamlining and improving current, sourcing, recruiting, hiring, and even promotional practices. While people analytics promise efficiencies and cost savings, these techniques also risk perpetuating stereotypes or disparate impact. This panel will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of incorporate people analytics into employment decisions, identify the associated legal and practice implications, and address the potential for regulatory review.
