Judgment No. 792
1. THE IMPUGNED DECISION IS QUASHED.
2. THE ILO SHALL PAY THE COMPLAINANT 5,000 SWISS FRANCS IN COSTS.
The Tribunal refers to the principle laid down in Judgment no. 767: the administration may alter its procedure, "but the change must be properly made known and may not be retroactive." In this case, the change concerns the construction of a provision in the Staff Regulations.
