Managing public employment cases in today's volatile, fast changing legal arena is no easy task. Just keeping up with the complex developments in constitutional, labor, civil service, administrative, and common law can be a full-time job.

Public Employee Discharge and Discipline is the definitive work on every aspect of public employment law. This invaluable two-volume resource is the only one of its kind to deal with all public employment disciplinary and discharge issues for federal, state and municipal employees.

It provides comprehensive coverage of the law of public employment embodied in the civil service, collective bargaining, administrative, constitutional, and wrongful discharge laws. It discusses the various avenues of redress along with judicial, administrative, and collective bargaining remedies. This valuable reference also contains a complete digest of federal and state cases covering open records and invasion of privacy, wrongful discharge, property interests, and entitlement in employment.

The Fourth Edition offers thorough analysis and in-depth discussion of such essential topics as:

  • First Amendment and whistleblowing
  • Public sector collective bargaining and arbitration
  • Due process in discipline and discharge
  • Administrative and judicial review
  • Title VII, ADA, FMLA, and other discrimination laws
  • Sexual harassment under 1983, Title IX, and Title VII
  • Drug testing
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Applicability of common law tort and contract principles of wrongful discharge

Also, with Public Employee Discharge and Discipline, you will also get a BONUS CD-ROM containing over 30 easy-access, customizable forms as well as current surveys of state and federal cases!

Public Employee Discharge and Discipline has been updated with the latest developments, including:

  • Recent Supreme Court decisions:
    • Mount Lemmon Fire Dist. v. Guido, which involved the Age Discrimination in Employment Act's applicability to public employers
    • New Prime, Inc. v. Oliveira, in which the Court construed the phrase “contracts of employment” in the Federal Arbitration Act's exception to a court's obligation to compel arbitration, applicable in disputes involving certain transportation workers
    • Henry Schein, Inc. v. Archer and White Sales, Inc., which involved the “wholly groundless” exception to contract provisions delegating the issue of arbitrability to an arbitrator
  • State and federal cases involving the preclusive effect of arbitration proceedings
  • Decisions involving the element of causation in disability discrimination cases
  • A Fifth Circuit case addressing whether a race-based hostile work environment violates equal protection guarantees and is therefore actionable under §1983
  • The latest developments on Title VII and discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity/transgender status
  • A Fifth Circuit case on whether and when an individual defendant's animus against a coworker's exercise of First Amendment rights may subject the individual to liability for First Amendment retaliation, even if the individual was not the final decisionmaker
  • State court decisions involving the availability of a common-law cause of action for wrongful discharge when a statutory remedy exists
  • A new Appendix C-1 now contains helpful Merit Systems Protection Board information and forms
