Cancellation of ABA National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law

Dear Technology Symposium Registrant –

The ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law has made the decision to cancel this year's National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law, scheduled for April 15-17 in Washington, D.C. The symposium has been rebooked for April 14-16, 2021 at the Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C., with comparable rates. Hotel and program details will be disseminated in October 2020.

We appreciate your patience as the LEL Section Executive Committee and Technology in the Practice and Workplace Committee Co-Chairs have been carefully monitoring this dynamic situation. We will miss seeing all of you in D.C. and deeply regret losing the opportunities for members and other attendees to connect and to share their collective experiences. Our paramount concern, however, is for the health and safety of our members and their communities as well as the Section’s diversity and inclusion values with respect to providing an inclusive environment to all, including our older and disabled members and attendees.

On behalf of the LEL Section Council, we appreciate the significant contributions made and preparation undertaken by the Technology in the Practice and Workplace Committee Co-Chairs and the National Symposium panelists. We anticipate offering many of the planned programs through CLE webinars over the next few months, so please watch your email for details on alternative programming. Please also look out for the Section newsletter.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you at the 14th Annual Labor & Employment Law Conference at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California on November 11-14, 2020. In the meantime, take good care of yourself, your family and your local community. Please note the following protocols and feel free to let us know what our Section might do to assist you during this challenging period.


Program: Cancellations for the National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law will automatically be processed, and refunds will be credited to you within the next two weeks using your original form of payment. For questions, contact the ABA Service Center at or (800) 285-2221 [International (312) 988-5000].

Hotel: If you reserved a room within the ABA room block, your reservation will be automatically cancelled. No cancellation fee will apply for rooms booked within the ABA room block.

Airlines: Please note that flight reservations must be cancelled by the individual who booked the reservation. It is up to the individual airlines if they will waive change fees or issue credits for the entirety of tickets.
