Abstract: Let $ G$ be a finite group and $ M$ be a compact piecewise linear (PL) manifold. Define a PL $ G$-isotopy to be a level-preserving PL action of $ G$ on $ M \times [0,1]$. In this paper PL $ G$-isotopies are studied and PL $ G$-isotopic actions (which need not be equivalent) are characterized.
