Planned by the KCBA Labor & Employment Law Section, this CLE will provide exceptional speakers, high-quality and timely legal insights, superb materials, an unbeatable price, lunch, and wonderful networking opportunities.
Some of the highlights for the conference include:

- The conference will also bring back the outstanding Paul Grossman to provide his annual EEO update and will feature sessions exploring important developments in labor law, implicit bias and sex stereotyping. Additionally, there is an optional ethics lunch.
