2017 Employment Law Symposium: The New Frontier

May 2, 2017 and May 11, 2017 (Lynchburg on May 2; Roanoke on May 11) / Sponsored by Gentry Locke Employment Law Team
Gentry Locke attorneys are ready, willing, and able to assist your company in adapting to the “new lay of the land” for changing federal and state laws.

Attend one of our Symposia events, where we’ll cover timely updates like these:

  • Changes in compliance: new rules, new reporting requirements, and new people enforcing them.
  • What to expect from OSHA, EEOC, NLRB, OFCCP, DOL, & other rowdy gangs of acronyms.
  • Handling internal and external workplace threats.
  • Harassment, pay equity, drug testing, workers’ compensation — we will cover a lot of ground!

Where and when: 

May 2 at the Craddock Terry Hotel and Event Center in Lynchburg, Virginia
(Registration closed)
May 11 at The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center in Roanoke, Virginia
(Registration closed, deadline was May 8)

The full day includes continental breakfast, lunch, and all materials. You’ll choose the event location when you register each attendee. Full agenda and topic details coming soon.

Cost: $200 per attendee
