    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,

    Section 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the
Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act.
    Section 5. Disclosure of the use of artificial intelligence
analysis. An employer that asks applicants to record video
interviews and uses an artificial intelligence analysis of the
applicant-submitted videos shall do all of the following when
considering applicants for positions based in Illinois before
asking applicants to submit video interviews:
        (1) Notify each applicant before the interview that
    artificial intelligence may be used to analyze the
    applicant's video interview and consider the applicant's
    fitness for the position.
        (2) Provide each applicant with information before the
    interview explaining how the artificial intelligence works
    and what general types of characteristics it uses to
    evaluate applicants.
        (3) Obtain, before the interview, consent from the
    applicant to be evaluated by the artificial intelligence
    program as described in the information provided.
    An employer may not use artificial intelligence to evaluate
applicants who have not consented to the use of artificial
intelligence analysis.
    Section 10. Sharing videos limited. An employer may not
share applicant videos, except with persons whose expertise or
technology is necessary in order to evaluate an applicant's
fitness for a position.
    Section 15. Destruction of videos. Upon request from the
applicant, employers, within 30 days after receipt of the
request, must delete an applicant's interviews and instruct any
other persons who received copies of the applicant video
interviews to also delete the videos, including all
electronically generated backup copies. Any other such person
shall comply with the employer's instructions.
