Show Topic:

AI technology is quickly being adopted by HR professionals as part of everyday use to assist in writing policy, conversing with employees, recruiting, and more. But are you looking for legal troubles if you use AI and recently even the EEOC has called it the “new frontier of employment discrimination”.

In this episode of the HR Power Hour, host CMA’s David Ciullo discusses The AI Revolution for HR with Brian Bouchard, Partner – Employment Attorney with the law firm Sheehan. Learn the potential risks including algorithmic discrimination, adverse impact, as well as the 4/5’s rule, black box phenomenon, and the McDonnell Douglass case. It’s not all bad, but you must be smart about using AI.

About The Guest:

Working in restaurants throughout high school, college, and law school taught Brian one unforgettable lesson: client service is job one. Since joining Sheehan Phinney in 2013, that mantra has been a driving force behind Brian’s legal practice.

Today, as a litigator focused on labor and employment, land use, and construction issues, Brian is driven by client service and seeks to offer practical, business focused guidance to the legal questions his clients raise. In the Labor and Employment field particularly, Brian counsels and represents companies through all manner of complexities, from claims involving discrimination, retaliation, and wage and hour violations to questions involving employee management, executive contracts, employee mobility, and legal compliance.

Brian has written and lectured on legal topics throughout the Granite State and New England, and he is never unimpressed by the complex issues facing employers, businesses, and individuals on a daily basis.
