Wet normalisering rechtspositie

A civil servant is an employee in the public service. A civil servant is not employed on the basis of an employment contract, but on the basis of a unilateral appointment. A civil servant is not subject to labour law, but to civil servant law. From 1 January 2020, the Legal Status (Normalisation) Act came into force With this, the differences between the legal status of a large group of civil servants were equalised with that of employees with an employment contract. However, there remains a group of civil servants for whom the original legal status has not changed (judges, police, firefighters). For them, procedures in civil service cases are conducted on the basis of administrative procedural law. Those proceedings are not governed by the Civil Code, but by the General Administrative Law Act. The basis for the legal status of all civil servants is the Civil Servants Act.
