Staff Matters n°23

In this newsletter we report about a recent legal case in which the General Court annulled the Commission’s disciplinary sanction to terminate a contract without notice.

As a matter of unity of the personal file, a disciplinary measure must not take into account those elements of the personal file that have been removed from it. In the case at hands, the Commission effectively reinstated an earlier disciplinary reprimand in its considerations, although the administration – upon request of the applicant – had already deleted this element from the file.
