The robotics revolution is profoundly changing the way work is performed. The technological advances entering the global workplace are inevitable, yet decades-old workplace laws threaten to fill this journey with legal landmines and uncertainty. This presentation will (1) unmask hidden employment and labor law compliance requirements of a roboticized workplace (e.g., laws and regulations on safety, data storage, privacy, disparate impact on protected categories of employees such as older workers, layoff notification, severance, union organizing, and retraining); (2) recommend practical legal compliance steps for both the robotics industry and the users of robotics; and (3) anticipate regulatory and legislative requirements.
