Fields of Intervention

4. I am a public servant and I am having problems at the workplace. Can the Greek Ombudsman mediate?

No, the Greek Ombudsman is not the competent authority on issues regarding the public sector’s staff regulations.  The concept of staff regulations includes any issue arising from the integration of a specific person into the public sector, such as salaries, salary or rank promotions, transfers, moves, secondments, allowances, leaves, disciplinary matters etc.
Under exceptional circumstances, the Greek Ombudsman is the competent authority in intervening in the following staff regulations matters governing public sector employees:
•    When the issue at hand is “discrimination due to race or ethnicity, religious or other conviction, invalidity, age, or sexual orientation”. When it comes to the private sector, the authority competent for the corresponding cases of discrimination is the Equal Treatment Committee of the Ministry of Justice
•    When you are a public sector employee, under any employment status, and are faced with unfavourable treatment due to your sex and/or family status.
