State officials

The regulations for state civil servants can in principle correspond to those for federal civil servants. Until 2006, the federal states had to align their state civil servant laws in accordance with the provisions of the Civil Service Framework Act (BRRG). As a result of the federalism reform, the legislative competence of the federal government and with it the old BRRG were lost. It was replaced by the Civil Service Status Act (BeamtStG) that came into force on April 1, 2009 . Since then, major deviations from the formerly largely uniform federal law have been possible.
