WEBINAR: Data & Algorithms at Work

In the growing conversation around technology regulation, not enough attention has been given to the protections that workers need and deserve. The use of data-driven technologies, such as electronic monitoring and algorithmic management, can have profound consequences for wages, working conditions, race and gender equity, and worker power.

In this webinar, you will hear from worker advocates talking about the challenges their members are facing in a wide range of industries—from intense productivity monitoring inside warehouse distribution centers to the micromanagement of hotel housekeepers at their jobs. We then present a set of new policy principles from the Labor Center’s report: Data and Algorithms at Work: The Case for Worker Technology Rights (https://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/data-algorithms-at-work/).

The event is kicked off by special guest Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, a leading advocate for protecting workers in the 21st century workplace.
