La Autoridad Nacional del Servicio Civil – SERVIR comparte el video de la tercera charla informativa sobre el “Régimen Disciplinario y Procedimiento Sancionador de la Ley del Servicio Civil” realizado el pasado 9 de julio en el auditorio del Ministerio de Trabajo y Promoción del Empleo.

En el vídeo, la Dra. Janeyri Boyer explica el Régimen Disciplinario previsto en el marco normativo de la Ley del Servicio Civil, el cual asegura una mayor protección de los derechos de los servidores civiles. Para ello, unifica las reglas de juego evitando que frente a un mismo hecho, en condiciones semejantes, se impongan diferentes sanciones dependiendo del régimen de vinculación en el que se encuentre el servidor público.

A federal appeals court Wednesday struck down a voter ID law in Texas, saying it violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act. A 5th Circuit three-judge panel ruled unanimously that the law does not equate to a “poll tax” but does discriminate against minority voters.

The 2011 law, considered one of the toughest in the country, was in effect during the midterm elections last year. It was one of a handful of voter ID laws enacted in Republican-governed states. The Texas law required voters to provide certain forms of identification before they could cast a ballot.

Supporters of the law say strong ID is needed to prevent voter fraud. The law’s detractors argue the requirements suppress legitimate voter turnout, particularly among minorities, who tend to vote for Democrats.

NPR’s John Burnett reported in Wednesday’s newscast that the Justice Department had argued that tens of thousands of minority voters would be prevented from casting ballots because they lacked one of seven types of approved ID card.

State Attorney General Ken Paxton says he will “continue to defend this important safeguard for all Texas voters.”

According to the Dallas Morning News, Texas has a few options for how to proceed.

“Texas is likely to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the state also could ask the full 5th Circuit to review the case.”

The case will now go back to a lower court for further review.
