Summary

Extract:

the complainant contends that his functions should be assigned to the next grade up. the tribunal, having examined the matter in detail comparing the post descriptions and statutory definitions of the two grades in question ["messenger" and "doorkeeper"], holds that the complainant's argument is unfounded and that the director-general did not exceed or abuse his discretionary authority. the complaint is dismissed.
