The California Supreme Court has now addressed the issue of the vested retirement benefits and the validity of the “California Rule”. For decades, the California Rule has been a strong judicially created barrier to public employers’ attempts to roll back escalating pension obligations. This webinar will discuss the California Rule, the Supreme Court’s ruling and its impacts on public employers and employees now and in the future.
Speakers: Gregg Adam and Steven M. Berliner
