The Labor & Employment Law Section typically host two section meetings - the Annual Business Meeting in the early summer and the Section's Annual Winter Event in January.

The next section meeting, the Annual Business Meeting, will be held in early summer.  All KCBA Labor & Employment Law Section members are encouraged to attend. These meetings are typically informal and designed to foster discussion within the labor and employment bar, and also provide excellent CLE opportunities to section members.

The section also hosts the annual Pacific Coast Labor & Employment Law Conference. The 56th annual conference will be April 27-28, 2023.  More information about the conference can be found here.
