Judgment No. 4096
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant challenges the failure to act on his request to update his terms of reference and the subsequent failure to take interim measures to protect him from harassment and retaliation by his supervisors.
post description; harassment; retaliation
The Tribunal considers that the impugned decision was in favour of the complainant, since it confirmed the Regional Director’s order to initiate two procedures as requested by the complainant. Accordingly, the complainant had to await the outcome of those procedures and, if not satisfied, he had to appeal internally, in accordance with the Organization’s rules, against the decisions which concluded those procedures. In light of the above, he did not have a cause of action to challenge the impugned decision.
cause of action
The complainant requests that the Tribunal order the Administration to make a public apology. The Tribunal is not competent to make such an order (see, for example, Judgments 2742, consideration 44, and 3597, consideration 10).
