Judgment No. 1314
1. THE ILO SHALL PAY THE COMPLAINANT 2,000 SWISS FRANCS IN COSTS.
2. HIS OTHER CLAIMS ARE DISMISSED IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
The complainant, who got assurances from the ILO that it was not going to fill a post in which he was interested, alleges on the basis of a list of staff movements that the organization had filled the post without holding an internal competition. It turns out that the list contained an error, of which the ILO failed to give the complainant notice, and the post had not been filled. The Tribunal holds that he did not suffer any injury on account of the alleged decision he impugns, but holds that the ILO left the matter uncertain for several months. There being no decision for the Tribunal to quash, his claims fail save the one to an award of costs.
