Although the 5,707 items posted on New York Public Personnel Law [NYPPL] to date will continue to be available to interested readers of this LawBlog for research purposes, I have discontinued my practice of posting new or updated case summaries on a daily basis.
HOW TO USE NYPPL'S RESEARCH TOOL
Type in a word or phrase related to the subject in which are you are interested in the box in the upper left displaying the "magnifying glass" symbol and all NYPPL postings containing that word or phrase will be displayed for your review. You may then "cut and paste" the text of the material in which you are interested contained in a case summary to your document or email.
N.B.: §22 of New York State's General Construction Law, in pertinent part, provides that “Whenever words of the masculine or feminine gender appear in any law, rule or regulation, unless the sense of the sentence indicates otherwise, they shall be deemed to refer to both male or female persons.” Case summaries posted in NYPPL typically follow this protocol.
