The liability of public employee based on personal mistake (A comparative study between France, Egypt and Jordan)

Author(s): Mohammed Abdul Mohsen Mohammed bin Treef

This study aims to clarify the legal implications of the personal Fault of the public employee in the Jordanian law, after identifying the concept of the public employee and the personal Fault committed by him, and a distinction has been made in this study between the concept of personal Fault and the accompanying Fault by examining the criteria for differentiation between them Which was derived from the administrative jurisprudence of the French State Council, and knowing the position of the comparative administrative judiciary from it, and in the end the researchers examined the legal consequences of the personal Fault of the public servant by identifying the personal responsibility of the public employee and the extent of the administration’s responsibility for the personal Fault of the public employee. The personal responsibility rests with the public employee whenever he commits personal mistakes that are related to the public job. Therefore, he bears the compensation from his own money, but the administration sometimes may commit an attachment mistake that shares with the personal mistake.
