More clarity required on contentious AMS algorithm

The Labor Market Assistance System (AMAS) was intended to be a tool for efficiently allocating funding measures to job seekers based on their labor market prospects. However, the implementation of the algorithm has been halted due to concerns about data privacy and profiling. The Administrative Court recently ruled that the algorithm is in the “significant public interest,” but this decision did not address whether profiling is admissible. As a result, a new procedure will be necessary to clarify this issue. The AMS is currently reviewing the decision and determining its next steps, which may impact when and in what form the program can be used. This ruling was initially reported by the Standard (online).
