Since 2012, EIPA’s European Centre for Judges and Lawyers (ECJL) in Luxembourg has held annual conferences on the theme ‘European Union Civil Service Law’. These events have been a great success and attracted the enthusiasm of many participants, including judges from the European Union Civil Service Tribunal (now defunct) and General Court, legal representatives of the European institutions, university professors and lawyers specialised in this field. In light of this, EIPA wishes to repeat the experience by organising the 12th Annual Conference. This will be an occasion to explore some of the recent developments in both substantive and procedural law.
The conference is geared towards civil servants and officials of the EU institutions, bodies and agencies who are responsible for legal aspects of human resources management; members of trade unions of the EU institutions; lawyers specialised in EU civil service litigation; national experts of civil service law; as well as officials of international, non-EU organisations who are responsible for staff matters.
What will you learn:
The programme of this year’s conference will comment and discuss, inter alia, the following topics:
- The current/potential role of the newly created European Public Prosecutor on EU staff’s rights and obligations;
- The ‘audit-prudence’ of the Court of Auditors in the field of EU staff’s rights/obligations;
- Procedures by the Ombudsman;
- Investigations carried out by OLAF;
- How to deal with problematic staff;
- Provisional/urgent measures;
- Legitimate expectations;
- Droits acquis, in particular as regards salary and pension rights.
The aim of the conference is twofold: first, to inform participants about recent developments in the case law of the General Court and to look in more detail at specific issues regarding civil service litigation in the EU, including those which are currently on the agenda; and secondly, to provide scope for a debate and a critical assessment of this case law among the key actors concerned, namely judges, lawyers and staff of the institutions.
