If you are using artificial intelligence to weed out applicants, you want to ensure that the
system you use does not disqualify qualified applicants. Not only do you want to ensure you are
able to consider all qualified applicants during this challenging hiring period, but if you are a
federal contractor, you will have hiring and documentation requirements. If you have at least
four employees, you are covered under the New Mexico Human Rights Act (HRA) and if you
have fifteen employees, you are covered under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. If you receive a
claim that your hiring process adversely affects protected classes, you may have to
demonstrate that your process does not negatively affect any group or groups of protected
classes. If you do use artificial intelligence in hiring don’t miss the following OFCCP and EEOC
roundtable on artificial intelligence and hiring.
