This chapter examines cases reported during 1981 concerning school employees. In the format used, federal questions are addressed first, then issues associated with state laws. The author deals with cases in the areas of discrimination in employment, substantive constitutional rights of speech and association and privacy, and procedural due process. The majority of cited discrimination cases deal with the interpretation of Title VII. Dismissal and discipline cases include those citing insubordination, unprofessional conduct, immorality, neglect of duty, and incompetency. These are followed by cases that concern reduction in force and abolition of position, contractual disputes, tenure, certification, disability, and retirement. (MLF)
