Jeremias Prassl Talk on The Algorithmic Boss
Monday, October 28, 2019, 4:10-6:00pm. No registration required.
NYU School of Law, Furman Hall, 245 Sullivan Street, Room 212. 

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.
