Civil Service Law

Civil Service Law is a particularly specialised legal area. The relationship between civil servant & governmental institution is comparable to that of employer & employee. Civil Service law is subject to a different legal framework. Government sectors like the State, regions, local boroughs, the police and educational authorities have individual legal status and therefore, separate regulations. These regulations encompass matters such as appointments, employment conditions, integrity, resignation, reorganisation & non-statutory supplementary benefits.
