Employment Foresight is an AI-enabled software that helps in-house counsel and employment lawyers get rapid clarity on how the courts would resolve several challenging employment law issues. Among the legal issues addressed by the software are reasonable notice, employee drug testing, worker classification, constructive dismissal, managerial exemption to overtime, and cause for dismissal. Employment Foresight analyzes data drawn from common law cases, using deep learning to discover hidden patterns in previous rulings. It allows users to navigate uncertainty in areas of employment law and make efficient, accurate, and confident business decisions.
Employment Foresight is the first tool to make predictions about future cases in any area of employment law by leveraging machine learning on data from past cases. Other available tools serve only as “checklists” on factors considered by courts. However, these checklists give no basis for how to weigh and make determinations in instances with competing factors.
Employment Foresight will take into account all the important factors that courts consider and make predictions based on how those factors interact. Leveraging state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms and extensive training by computer scientists and law professors from the University of Toronto, Employment Foresight predicts how courts will rule on contentious employment law issues based on unique factual scenarios. For example, Employment Foresight accurately predicts the amount of notice a court would consider reasonable, if the case were to be litigated.
Additionally, the outcome prediction provided by Employment Foresight will reduce the risks of litigation and negotiation, saving employers the costs that are often associated with these risks.
Employment Foresight makes lawyers and in-house counsel better by increasing accuracy, efficiency, and confidence.
