Judgment No. 117
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
If the signatory to the contract of employment had authority from the organization, the complainant could be held to be employed by the organization. "Authority is a clear and precise legal conception and if it cannot be found to exist it is not permissible to take refuge in imprecise expressions, such as that the credit union [which employs the complainant] was a body "within the framework of [the organization]". Accordingly, the complainant not being employed by [the organization], and so not one of its staff members, the Tribunal lacks jurisdiction".
