Judgment No. 293
THE COMPLAINT AND THE INTERVENTIONS ARE DISMISSED.
"In the opinion of the Tribunal the expression 'acquired right' [...] relates to rights of substance, whose impairment would result in injury, financial or otherwise, to the staff member: it does not embrace matters of nomenclature." The complainant wanted her employment classified as 'permanent' rather than, as under the new nomenclature, 'continuing'.

"It is not disputed that [...] the council of the organization could by means of a resolution supplement or amend the Staff Regulations without prejudice to the acquired rights of staff members."
