Judgment No. 4285
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant contests what she considers to be UNESCO’s failure to respect her right to sick leave and medical privacy.
receivability of the complaint; sick leave; complaint dismissed
The Tribunal has constantly held that a complaint will not be receivable “if the underlying internal appeal was not filed within the applicable time limits” (see Judgment 3758, consideration 10, and the cases cited therein). As the complainant did not exhaust the internal means of redress regarding the ICTP Medical Service’s unsuccessful attempt to contact her physician, as required in Article VII, paragraph 1, of the Tribunal’s Statute, the complaint is irreceivable.
