Judgment No. 1068
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
Consideration 3, Summary
By a letter of 20 December 1988 the complainant asked the Director-General to pay her three months' salary based on an offer made to her on 23 October 1981. Her claim was nowhere near being in time according to the time limit set in Article 14.8 of the Staff Regulations. The organisation's failure to pay her has no effect on the time limit.

Consideration 4, Summary
The complainant received a termination indemnity under Article 11.6 of the ILO Staff Regulations (indemnity upon reduction of staff). She claims a more generous one under Article 11.16 (agreed termination). The indemnity under dispute was mentioned in an agreement signed in 1977, which the Tribunal recognised as valid in Judgment 404 of 24 April 1980. Besides, her entitlements were paid in full on 24 January 1979. Her claim of 20 December 1988 is therefore time- barred under Article 14.8 and also irreceivable under the res judicata rule.
