Judgment No. 318

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Considerations

Extract:

Under the applicable provision "and the general principles of international public service, the provisional nature of his position denies a probationer the safeguards enjoyed by an established official or by the holder of a fixed-term appointment or of one without limit of time [...]. The Director-General may dismiss him if satisfied that he does not have the right qualifications."

Keywords

international civil service principles; probationary period; termination of employment; discretion; safeguard

Considerations

Extract:

"The main grounds for the impugned decision are that the complainant, who would brook no challenge to his views, proved unable to obey his supervisor's instructions and adapt to the methods of the organization. It is clear from the dossier that those grounds are factually correct and are not tainted with any of the flaws [...] which would entitle the Tribunal to interfere."

Keywords

probationary period; termination of employment; insubordination; working relations; judicial review

Considerations

Extract:

Keywords

probationary period; qualifications; termination of employment; unsatisfactory service; purpose

Considerations

Extract:

"The Tribunal is competent to review the lawfulness of any decision by the Director-General [...]. In particular it may determine whether that decision [is tainted by any of the flaws which entitle the Tribunal to interfere]. The Tribunal may not [...] replace with its own the executive head's opinion of a staff member's performance, conduct or fitness for international service."
