Judgment No. 3273
The complaint is dismissed in its entirety.
The complainant challenges the decision to place his post in a certain grade group following an allegedly flawed assessment process.
"The Tribunal has consistently confirmed that an evaluation or classification exercise is based on the technical judgement to be made by those whose training and experience equip them for that task. It is subject to only limited review. The Tribunal cannot, in particular, substitute its own assessment for that of the organisation."
