The 2013 edition of The Discipline Book, incorporating summaries of relevant decisions issued through December 31, 2012, is now available

The Discipline Book is a 2100+ page 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, St. John's University, said:

"... I have reviewed previous editions of this work and it is now bigger and better than ever.  It now spans 2127 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. As in earlier editions, the book is published as an e-book which makes searching via MS Word easy and fast."
