Using Artificial Intelligence in the workplace
What are the main ethical risks?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are changing workplaces. AI systems have the
potential to improve workplaces, but ensuring trustworthy use of AI in the workplace
means addressing the ethical risks it can raise. This paper reviews possible risks
in terms of human rights (privacy, fairness, agency and dignity); transparency and
explainability; robustness, safety and security; and accountability. The paper also
reviews ongoing policy action to promote trustworthy use of AI in the workplace. Existing
legislation to ensure ethical workplaces must be enforced effectively, and serve as
the foundation for new policy. Economy- and society-wide initiatives on AI, such as
the EU AI Act and standard-setting, can also play a role. New workplace-specific measures
and collective agreements can help fill remaining gaps.
