2. WHO shall pay the complainant costs in the amount of 5,000 Swiss francs.

The complainant challenges the Director-Generalís final decision on her internal appeal in relation to the issuance of new terms of reference altering the functions of her post, arguing that the compensation she was offered was inadequate.
complaint allowed; transfer; reassignment
[T]he case law is clear that a complainantís claims must not exceed in scope the claims submitted during the internal appeal process. However, a complainant is not precluded from advancing new pleas before the Tribunal even if those
pleas were not placed before the relevant internal appeal body (see Judgment 2571, consideration 5).

In Judgment 2364, consideration 2, the Tribunal considered grounds of complaint based on facts arising subsequent to the impugned decision.
