Judgment No. 845
THE COMPLAINT AND THE APPLICATION TO INTERVENE ARE DISMISSED.
The complainant claims 'rapid promotion' by virtue of the exception provided for in paragraph 64 of document CA/PV 10 concerning EPO staff members who were recruited before 1 January 1981. Inasmuch as the complainant was appointed after that date, he is not entitled to the promotion.

"Even if an examiner appointed after 1 January 1981 had been promoted contrary to the rapid promotion rule in CA/20/80, that is no reason for unlawfully promoting the complainant. As the Tribunal stated in Judgment 614, a complainant may not rely on unlawful treatment which conferred benefit on other staff members: equality in law does not mean equality in the breach of it."
