Warmed over hash. But glad to now know we have a ... Constitutional Right to Continued Employment. Slick. Does that start at birth or age of emancipation?

While 8:44 pm is admirably snarky, the poster is clearly ignorant of California law. Public employees have a constitutionally-vested property right in their employment, which basically means you can't be fired without a fair due process.

It's unclear that this is applicable, since LLNS is not public anymore. It certainly has the potential to put the transition employment process under the microscope.

A tip of the hat and thanks for the clarification. I'm all for due process.
