Due to the present circumstances, we have cancelled our 2020 Spring Seminar, Race And National Origin Discrimination In The Workplace. Our priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, attendees, and the community. NELA is committed to bringing you the highest quality CLE programs possible, including the interactive and networking benefits of an in-person program.

If you made a reservation at the Guest House at Graceland, please remember to cancel your reservation to avoid being charged. NELA will be issuing a full refund of paid registration fees to each participant.

This is an incredibly timely topic, as we are seeing more and more every day. We are especially grateful to our planning committee and all of our speakers who invested their time and efforts into creating their panels. We will be in touch in the coming weeks to provide information on a new date and forum to discuss these issues.

All too often workers are denied employment and faced with insidious discrimination in the workplace because of their race, ethnicity, or country of origin. Join experts in plaintiffs’ employment law as they discuss the fundamentals of race and national origin discrimination cases, how to respond to common defenses, the often intersectional nature of discrimination, how to combat implicit and explicit bias, the ethical considerations of language barriers, and much more. With 11 75-minute panels over 2 days, and some of the top practitioners in the fight against race and national origin discrimination in the workplace, the 2020 NELA Spring Seminar is a can’t-miss event.


  • The Fundamentals Of Litigating Race & National Origin Claims;
  • Implicit Bias;
  • Intersectional Discrimination In Race & National Origin Cases;
  • The Effects Of Immigration Status On Employment Cases;
  • The Ethical Challenges Of Language Barriers and more.
