Algorithm-driven Hiring Tools: Innovative or Disability Discrimination?

Article By  

Algorithm-driven hiring tools have grown increasingly prevalent in recent years. Thousands of job-seekers across the United States are now asked to record videos that employers mine for facial and vocal cues. They complete online tests or games that purport to evaluate their “personal stability,” optimism, or attention span.

Employers using these tools seek a fast and efficient way to process job applications in large numbers.
