Abstract

The civil servant is the interface between the public authority and the citizens.

The image of the public institution is an element that essentially contributes to building citizens' trust in it.

With the development of access to new technologies and the disclosure in the online environment of a part of the civil servant's life, there is an interference between the image of the civil servant and that of the public institution.

This aspect was not observed by the legislature, which extended the scope of disciplinary responsibility and extra-professional behavior that has an impact on the image of the public institution.

A case of disciplinary liability has been instituted that concerns the manifestations that prejudice the prestige of the public authority or institution in which the public official carries out his activity.

A disciplinary action with such an object can be based on the way in which the civil servant is exposed through the new technologies.

Keywords: civil servants, disciplinary liability, civic conduit, public administration
