Are you ready for the NYC Bias Audit Law?

The Local Law 144 (NYC Bias Audit Law) was enacted by the NYC Council in November 2021. As of 5 July 2023, companies are prohibited from using automated tools to hire candidates or promote employees, unless the tools have been independently audited for bias. These regulations are likely to affect hundreds of organisations within the city and may include your own.

We can help you prepare for the NYC Bias Audit Law

Ensure you’re compliant with the new NYC Bias Audit requirements with a fully independent and impartial audit from Holistic AI. Our solution is fully scalable, suitable for any size of organisation.

Prepare a bias audit report

We conduct an independent bias audit, in line with the NYC Bias Audit Law requirements, to examine whether your system is discriminating against any protected categories, such as gender, sex, ethnicity, or race.

Bias assessment per system, including, but not limited to:  

  • Disparate impact analysis on persons (e.g., candidates, employees)
  • Per component 1 protected categories (e.g., gender, ethnicity, race)

As per the NYC regulations, we will collate the results of the bias audit report into a comprehensive summary of findings. This summary will include the selection rates and impact ratios of protected categories, and it will be shared on your company website as required by the regulations. This will help ensure that your company is in compliance with the law and promoting transparency in the use of AEDTs.

Our team of experts comprises machine learning engineers, data scientists, business psychologists, and legal and policy specialists who can provide you with ongoing training and insights to prevent, detect, and mitigate AI bias issues as your system evolves.

In addition to conducting the bias audit and preparing the summary of findings, we can also help you communicate the results to your clients and stakeholders. Our team can translate the technical results of the audit into clear and concise insights that interested parties can easily understand. This will help your clients and stakeholders understand the impact of the audit in relation to their specific interests and ensure transparency in your use of AEDTs.
