Steve Swirsky, Member of the Firm, moderates three morning sessions addressing AI and labor law developments at the 76th NYU Annual Conference on Labor & Employment Law: Challenges & Opportunities, which runs from May 22 to 23.

Thursday, May 23

Steve will moderate three panels addressing the following topics:

"AI Developments in the US Workplace: US and EU Structures," at 9:05 a.m.

More companies are rolling out artificial intelligence (AI) programs following ChatGPT, and governance regulations are beginning to emerge. Employers and employees need to learn about the new information technology and what are the discrimination and legal issues lurking behind the development and use of the technology.

"Professional Responsibility: Developing Issues For Lawyer’s Use of AI and Protecting against Cybersecurity Threats," at 10:00 a.m.

As more lawyers leverage the tools of AI in garnering efficiencies for clients, what are the professional responsibility issues in employing these new tools? What professional obligations do lawyers have in staying on top of developing technology in order to, say, protect privileged information?

"Labor Rising and Challenges and the National Labor Relations Board and Act," at 11:00 a.m.

Union victories in NLRB elections, changing public acceptance of unions, record number of 10(j) applications, long, successful strikes in the automobile and film industries—all indications of labor on the rise. This session will explore challenges to NLRB authority from Space X, to the standard for Section 10(j) relief in Starbucks v. McKinney in the Supreme Court, and to employer discovery of rank-and-file employee view in the Leslie v. Starbucks in the 2nd Circuit. The session will also explore challenges for employers arising from the Board’s embrace of Joy Silk-type bargaining orders in Cemex; as well as NLRB rulemaking on joint employers, DOL rulemaking on independent contractors, and state law conditioning subsidies on contractors not agreeing to card-check for union authorization.
