The Discipline Book is a handbook for administrators, union officials and attorneys involved in disciplinary actions taken against public officers and employees employed by New York State and its political subdivisions under the State's Civil Service Law, the Education Law and disciplinary grievance procedures negotiated pursuant to the Taylor Law. It is also a valuable resource for those involved in disciplinary actions taken against public officers and employees serving in other States.

In his review, Mitchell H. Rubinstein, Adjunct Professor of Law, St. John's University, said:

"... The Discipline Book remains the best comprehensive authority in New York public sector labor and employment law. It extensively discusses, like no other work, such diverse topics as due process, employee discipline, Education Law 3020-a hearings, Civil Service Section 75 hearings, the appellate process, First Amendment issues, defamation, evidence, drug testing, provisional and probationary appointments as well as the Taylor Law. As an added bonus, a separate section of the book contains case summaries of leading cases together with links to the decision on the internet and links to Education Law 3020-a forms and time-tables."

If you win, or better yet, avoid, one lawsuit or grievance based on information found in The Discipline Book you probably will save many times its price.


...I have reviewed previous editions of this work and it is now bigger and better than ever. It now spans almost 2000 pages and it covers just about everything; and I mean everything.

What is particularly valuable about this book is that it concentrates on recent case law. Hundreds of recent cases as well as hundreds of the leading cases are discussed. The book provides practical advice and information in an easy to understand format. Quite simply, there is no other book which you could purchase involving New York law which provides timely, practical and exhaustive analysis of discipline, constitutional issues involving discipline such as the First Amendment, evidentiary issues, procedural issues, collective bargaining issues, and union issues.

Any administrator, employer, union, or attorney who is involved in public sector labor management relations in New York will want to purchase at least one copy.
