Jeremias Adams-Prassl Talk on The Algorithmic Boss with Robert Seamans as a discussant
Monday, October 28, 2019, 4:10-5:55pm
NYU School of Law

Technology is revolutionizing the world of work. Among important debates about the gig economy and the automation of jobs, however, scant attention has been paid to the rise of algorithmic management: the increasingly pervasive reliance on monitoring technology and sophisticated algorithms to measure, control, and sanction workers. Building on his recent book Humans as a Service: the Promise and Perils of Work in the Gig Economy (OUP 2018), Jeremias will explore the challenges for employment law and labor market regulation in a world in which automation hasn't replaced workers-but their employers.
