ASA Advocacy: Enforcement of New York City AI Law Postponed Until April 2023

The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection has announced it will delay enforcing the city’s artificial intelligence law (Local Law 144), which has an effective date of Jan. 1, 2023.

Details from the department’s December 2022 Update include the following: “DCWP is working on rules for Local Law 144 of 2021 (automated employment decision tools). Due to the high volume of public comments, we are planning a second public hearing. In the meantime, we will not enforce Local Law 144 until April 15, 2023.”

ASA, along with the New York Staffing Association and its lobbying firm Constantinople & Vallone Consulting, have engaged with DCWP such that any final rules take into account industry concerns. ASA will continue to work with the agency and will keep members apprised as the rulemaking process continues to unfold.
