In a major development, The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) has introduced draft regulations aimed at safeguarding the rights of employees and consumers when it comes to automated decision-making technology. These regulations would bring about new protections and ensure the responsible use of such technology by businesses.
Under the proposed regulations, businesses would be required to provide pre-use notice to job applicants and employees regarding the use of automated tools. This measure aims to enhance transparency and allow individuals to make informed decisions about their personal data. Additionally, the regulations reinforce the rights of individuals to opt out of and access information about businesses’ use of automated technology.
To ensure compliance and minimize potential risks, the draft regulations also call for businesses to conduct risk assessments. This measure aims to identify any potential biases or adverse effects associated with the use of automated decision-making technology, allowing businesses to mitigate such risks and protect the interests of employees and consumers.
