Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Consideration 1

Extract:

"g staff are recruited largely [in the headquarters country or nearby]. it is therefore only right that as an incentive to recruitment their pay, including family allowances, should be in line with pay scales in [the headquarters country]. officials in other categories, however, may come from and be required to serve anywhere in the world. for them [...] the [organisation] takes as its standard of comparison the best-paid national civil service." the allegation of unlawful discrimination fails.
