Judgment No. 1548
1.The Director-General's decision of 6 July 1995 is quashed.
2. The FAO shall pay the complainant damages in a sum equivalent to two years' salary and allowances at the rates prevailing in February 1994.
3. It shall pay him 1,000 United States dollars in costs.
4. His other claims are dismissed.
The grounds for non-renewal being deterioration from 1990 in the complainant's performance and conduct, "the burden is on the Organization to show that its decision rested upon proper appraisal of the complainant's performance. [...] All the reports up to September 1990 having been satisfactory, the Organization's failure to have proper appraisal reports made since then is a flaw in the decision."
