The description from Amazon is as follows:
This comprehensive handbook has been written 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 various State laws, including the Civil Service Law, the Education Law and contract disciplinary grievance procedures negotiated pursuant to the Taylor Law. Also a valuable resource for those involved in disciplinary actions taken against public officers and employees serving with other states.
But, the book is much more than this. It spans 674 pages and it is an everything you wanted to know book about public employee discipline in New York. For example, it covers Education Law Section 3020-a and CIvil Service Section 75 hearings in detail. It also discusses the leading appellate cases.
It is a "must" purchase for anyone who practices in this area. What is really nice about the book is that it is in electronic form and it is searchable. That will save readers a lot of time.
