promotion

Consideration 1

Extract:

The Tribunal notes that the delegation of power of signature of 1 February 2009 was not withdrawn by the new Director General. In an international organisation, such a delegation is institutional rather than personal. It hence continues to operate after the delegator has left office and until one of his or her successors decides to withdraw it.

Consideration 6

Extract:

[T]he behaviour of the complainant’s superiors, whom he was entitled to presume had authority, maintained his belief that they would take the necessary steps to have him promoted to the generic post corresponding to the duties entrusted to him, or that he would be granted a differential allowance, which he claims for the first time in these proceedings.
As such a promotion procedure was not feasible under Article 5(3)(c) or Article 45a(1) of the Staff Regulations, the complainant was unduly kept in an illusory position for an excessively long time, which undeniably constituted a substantial affront to his dignity.
