The 2010 edition of The Discipline Book, incorporating summaries of relevant decisions issued through December 31, 2009, is now available


The Discipline Book is an e electronic 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.

Reviewing The Discipline Book, 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.

"What makes this book, which is actually a legal treatise, so outstanding is that it is practice orientated. It does not appear to be designed to be read from cover to cover, though many may do so. Rather, it is a legal research tool. The book is arranged by legal issue so that readers can more easily find a solution to a problem."
