Don’t Leave HR to Luck: 2020 Employment Law Symposium (Postponed)

Important Symposium Update as of March 12, 2020

TO:  Registrants for the Gentry Locke Labor & Employment Symposium

RE:  Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

After careful evaluation, we have decided to postpone our Labor & Employment Symposium that was scheduled on March 17 in Lynchburg and March 19 in Roanoke. Protecting our attendees, speakers, and staff is our top priority. We will evaluate the landscape and will inform you of our future plans as soon as possible. We will assess any requests for refunds after we decide our future plans (that may also include webinars).

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any other questions, please e-mail us at Stay safe, stay well, and stay strong.


If only wishing made it so!

Sign up to attend our Employment Law Symposium today!

Gentry Locke’s Employment Law Attorneys will coach you on several magical tactics, strategies, and policies you need to help your company be successful.
