The issue of the subjectivity of artificial intelligence acting for an employer

Krzysztof Stefański

Abstrakt

The rapid development of artificial intelligence and large-scale application of algorithmic management has led to significant changes in the work environment. These primarily concern the ways in which work is provided and the conditions under which it is carried out, but they should be viewed much more broadly. Already today, most of the employer’s tasks in relation to individual employment relationships can be performed by artificial intelligence. In the near future, this trend will become even more noticeable. Since AI manages employees and de facto exercises control over them in the work process, it seems worthwhile to start a discussion on the subjectivity of AI as an employer. This is all the more important because other branches of law already discuss the subjectivity of AI, while the doctrine of labour law does not address this topic, although it is in the work environment that the impact of AI is most visible.
