  • Will Aitchison talks about the latest topics affecting law enforcement and fire protection personnel. He also interviews labor and employment experts from across the country.

In this month’s podcast, Will covers a federal bankruptcy judge ruling that upends the widely held belief that public workers’ pensions have a special status in California that makes them impossible to cut, further chipping away at the idea that pensions are sacrosanct in a municipal bankruptcy.

In the latest podcast in our interview series, Will speaks with management-side employment attorney, Robin Shea of the law firm Constangy, Brooks & Smith, LLP. Robin has more than 20 years’ experience in employment litigation and is author of the blog Employment & Labor Insider. You can also follow Robin on Twitter @RobinEShea.
