This 2014 edition of Layoff, Preferred Lists and Reinstatement provides a concise guide to the laws, rules and regulations, and selected court and administrative decisions, applicable to New York State as an employer and its political subdivisions, municipalities and school districts.
In his review of this 674 page e-book Professor Mitchell H. Rubinstein, Adjunct Professor of Law, St. Johns Law School and New York Law School, said:
“This book shines as a manual…. It discusses, in case brief form, hundreds ... of New York Civil Service, Education Law, Military Law and Retirement and Social Security Law cases ….The book often compares decisions under the Civil Service law to decisions under the Education Law which presents attorneys who may be litigating these cases with possible creative arguments…. The book is also very timely given the current economy. As an added bonus the book includes several key hard to find Commissioner of Education decisions and helpful charts.
"Every lawyer who practices in this area and every administrator and union official involved with layoffs will want to get a copy of this new book.”
