The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) Civil Rights Division each put employers on notice: When using AI in employment processes, employers are responsible for inspecting tools for disability bias, and they better have a plan to provide reasonable accommodations, because federal agencies say they have their eyes on how using artificial intelligence could lead to discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The Yen has the potential to drop to levels last seen in 1990 on Japan’s deepening monetary policy divergence with the US. And, selling the yen has become a favorite macro trade this year as rising Treasury yields spur investors to ditch Japan’s currency for the higher-yielding greenback. The Bank Of Japan has vowed to maintain its easing bias even in the face of the currency’s losses, making it unlikely that the declines will reverse anytime soon.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK-B) bought $3 billion worth of shares in Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C) in Q1, giving the group a stake of about 2.8%, according to filings with regulators. The investment came as Berkshire sold the remainder of its position in Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE: WFC), a rival bank that had been a staple in Buffett’s portfolio for more than three decades, Financial Times reported.

Finally, Tesla shares continued their fall, dropping ~35% since the announcement that Elon Musk was buying Twitter. That may imperil Musk’s ability to complete the deal, given that he’s taken out meaty loans tied to the value of Tesla’s stock.
