Judgment No. 228
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
After working under a P.5 contract, the complainant accepted a P.4 mission on condition that his post would be upgraded to P.5. The organization had clearly informed him that the upgrading of his post would depend on the results of an administrative procedure; "it could not promise and had in fact never promised any positive outcome"; it "kept the complainant informed of the steps taken under the procedure and of developments. [The complainant] cannot therefore properly contend that the organization showed bad faith towards him."

After holding a P.5 contract, the complainant was offered a P.4 mission. The appointment was "a new one and quite distinct from those he had previously held. His appointment at a lower grade cannot be assimilated to downgrading in the absence of any special circumstances."
