2019 Annual Employment Lecture: What if ... your boss was an algorithm?

42 Bedford Row invites you to their 2019 Annual Lecture on Thursday 3rd October 2019 at 18.00pm:

Followed by a drinks reception where you will get the opportunity to meet the speakers and members from our employment team.

42 Bedford Row are delighted to announce that Professor Jeremias Adams-Prassl will deliver our 2019 Annual Lecture.

Technology is revolutionising the world of work. Amidst 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 (OUP 2018), awarded the 2019 St Petersburg International Legal Forum Prize, Jeremias will explore how employment law can respond to a world in which automation hasn't replaced workers-but their employers.

Speakers:
