Disciplinary law

Disciplinary law monitors ethical and correct action

As a government, you have an interest in the correct application of disciplinary law within the framework of your personnel policy. Each professional group ensures that its members strictly comply with the ethical requirements.

Disciplinary claims examine whether you overstep certain ethical or code of conduct rules. And whether you are to blame for this yourself, whether through omission or failure. They check to see if you are performing your profession according to the rules and if you are complying with your obligations.

Who is subject to disciplinary law?

Disciplinary law does not apply to everyone. Only specific professions are subject to this, such as:

  • civil servants
  • police officers
  • lawyers
  • company auditors
  • doctors and medical care professions
  • ..

The sanctions are not mild and the consequences can be drastic. From a moral rejection to a blame, a warning or a reprimand to more severe punishments such as suspension, demotion or even dismissal with loss of pension rights.
