Judgment No. 1132
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The case law makes it clear that time limits in rules on internal appeals must be strictly adhered to. The complainant did not comply with the requirements of the Service Regulations. Nor can he show any breach of good faith on the organisation's part. His complaint is therefore irreceivable under Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute because he has failed to exhaust the internal means of redress."
ILOAT reference: ARTICLE VII(1) OF THE STATUTE
