The rights and obligations of officials and agents of the EU institutions are set out as provisions of administrative law in Staff Regulations which differ from the national legislation of their members state of origin.
FLINN can advise EU officials and their trade unions on the various matters covered by these staff regulations such as recruitment, promotion, working conditions, social security benefits, pension rights and transfers of national pensions, termination of service, …
Our team can assist the official in filing a request and in assessing the decisions of the appointing authority in the light of the Staff Regulations. We also provide in-depth analysis and advice on the chances of success in appealing such decisions.
Whether at the pre-litigation stage or in the context of proceedings before the CJEU, FLINN ensures proper drafting of procedural documents and the necessary assistance and/or representation before the authorities.
In disciplinary matters, FLINN assists officials during questioning by the Investigation and Disciplinary Office (IDOC) or the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) and during further proceedings before the appointing authority and, where appropriate, before the CJEU.
FLINN always strives for a hands-on approach in close dialogue with the official and/or the trade union concerned.
