Predicting judicial decision making using artificial intelligence: reasonable notice

Blue J Legal


Description

What is the reasonable length of notice that an employer must provide to a worker upon dismissal? In this webinar, Blue J Legal's CEO, Benjamin Alarie, will give a walk-through of Employment Foresight, a new artificial intelligence-powered software being used by lawyers, in-house counsel and HR professionals to accurately predict how courts will decide outcomes of challenging employment law issues such as reasonable notice periods. He will use the classifier on a recently decided case and demonstrate the impacts of key factors, including which factors can swing a decision one way or another.
