Los Angeles, CA – Liebert Cassidy Whitmore attorneys played a prominent role in editing and drafting portions of the latest treatise on California's public sector labor and employment law. The treatise, California Public Sector Employment Law, is published by Matthew Bender (Lexis/Nexis) and written by an outstanding team of skilled experts who are members of The State Bar of California's Labor and Employment Law Section.
