EPIC Urges OSTP to Consider Full Range of Workplace Surveillance Harms

June 15, 2023

In comments to the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), EPIC urged the Administration to “take a broad view of worker surveillance and consider the multiplicity of harms created by surveillance, both when it works as intended and when it goes off the rails.” EPIC also urged OSTP to “define worker surveillance broadly to include surveillance in the hiring process.”

EPIC provided OSTP with examples of prior work EPIC has done on workplace surveillance and the harms caused by automated decision-making systems, including EPIC’s recent report on generative AI, EPIC’s report Screened and Scored in DC, and EPIC’s FTC complaint against job applicant screening platform HireVue.
