Civil Servants’ and Disciplinary Regulations

Civil servants, but also magistrates and professionals are subject to disciplinary regulations. These vary according to the office or profession performed, but can have serious consequences. The supervising authorities may impose sanctions, ranging from disciplinary punishment, to suspension (with or without pay), dismissal or striking off the roll. In order to impose sanctions, the government must follow special procedures. The rights to defence of the civil servant, magistrate or professional in question are fundamental in this.
