“Widespread” worker discrimination is likely unless new laws are introduced to plug “huge gaps” in the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace, a report from the Trades Union Congress (TUC) has warned.

The new report finds that employment law is failing to keep pace with the rapid expansion of workplace AI which risks workers becoming powerless to challenge “inhuman” forms of automated performance management.
