  • Judgment 3691


    122nd Session, 2016
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainants challenge the salary deductions made following their participation in strikes.

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    [A]s noted in the Tribunal’s case law, it is impractical for complainants to submit specific claims (in their appeals) against delays in the internal appeal procedure as they cannot know when the procedure will finish (see Judgments 2744, consideration 6, and 3429, consideration 4).

  • Judgment 3688


    122nd Session, 2016
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to abolish her post and to separate her from service.

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    There is no reason why the complainant was informed [...], in the presence of others, that her post was to be abolished while she was at a meeting with the Ombudsman to explore her secondment to another department. That action was insensitive and inappropriate. This failure entitles the complainant to an award of moral damages.

    Keywords:

    damages; moral injury;

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    The delays in the HBA proceedings were unreasonable and were not caused by wrongful procedural conduct on the part of the complainant and there is no indication that the HBA’s workload justified it. The delay before the HBA was mainly caused by the necessity to request information and documents from WHO, which should have been provided early in the process.
    The delay entitles the complainant to an award of moral damages for the defendant’s breach of its duties of due diligence and care (see Judgments 2522, under 7, 3160, under 16, and 3188, under 25).

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    It was stated in Judgment 3582, consideration 4, for example, that the amount of damages awarded for the injury caused by an unreasonable delay in processing an internal appeal depends on the length of the delay and its consequences. The consequences vary depending on the subject matter of the dispute so that a delay in resolving a matter of limited seriousness in its impact on the appellant will ordinarily be less injurious than a delay in resolving a matter which has a severe impact.

    Consideration 31

    Extract:

    WHO’s failure to disclose the relevant documents to the complainant in the internal appeal proceedings breached the adversarial principle or the principle of equality of arms, which constitutes a breach of due process entitling the complainant to moral damages.

  • Judgment 3677


    122nd Session, 2016
    International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant contests the Federation’s decisions to abolish her post and not to renew her fixed-term contract.

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    In assessing whether moral damages should be awarded for a lengthy delay in disposing of an internal appeal, a number of considerations may be relevant. In some cases it might be sufficient for a complainant only to establish that the internal appeal took a period of time that could reasonably be viewed as too long. In other cases the explanation for the delay will become relevant.

  • Judgment 3636


    122nd Session, 2016
    European Southern Observatory
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant has filed an application for execution of Judgment 3282.

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The Tribunal did not order the complainant’s reinstatement in Judgment 3282, nor did it order ESO to grant him a “notional reinstatement”, i.e. to pay the amounts the complainant would have earned if he had had his contract renewed. As the Tribunal did not order his reinstatement, his contract expired on 31 December 2011. As noted above, the Tribunal limited the award of compensation to “material damages in the amount equivalent to two years’ salary, including all benefits, entitlements and emoluments plus interest at a rate of 5 per cent per annum, less any amounts he has earned in that period”. Had it been its intent, the Tribunal would have specifically awarded payment of the amount equivalent to the contributions for the complainant’s pension and Health Insurance and Long Term Care Schemes. See, for example, Judgment 2621, consideration 5[.] Moreover, considering that access to the CERN Pension Fund requires a staff member to have a valid contract of employment, and that as of 1 January 2012 the complainant no longer had that status, it follows that he was not entitled to any contributions to the Pension Fund after the end of his contract on 31 December 2011.

  • Judgment 3635


    122nd Session, 2016
    Centre for the Development of Enterprise
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainants have filed applications for execution of Judgment 3238.

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    It is clear from the wording of that consideration [...] that the sums equivalent to the various social contributions listed therein were to be paid directly to the complainants, and not to the institutions which normally receive such contributions. Indeed, this is the approach usually taken by the Tribunal where, as in the present case, staff members whose dismissal has been set aside are not reinstated in the employer organisation, because the social contributions that are due to such institutions by virtue of an employment relationship are devoid of any basis once this relationship ends.

    Keywords:

    application for execution; damages; social benefit;

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    It must [...] be underscored that, contrary to the CDE’s apparently mistaken belief, the Centre was not ordered in Judgment 3238 to pay social security contributions but, as consideration 20 states, “the equivalent” of those contributions, which is not to be confused with the latter and is entirely different from a legal standpoint. This sum is in fact an integral part of the lump-sum damages mentioned above. It must further be recalled that one of the justifications for this award was the legitimate desire to remedy the financial loss that the complainants would suffer if they enrolled in a private social insurance scheme at their own expense after their dismissal, for which the payment of contributions to the NSSO does not compensate in any way.

    121st Session, 2016
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant contests the decision to abolish her post and not to renew her fixed-term appointment.

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "[T]he Tribunal recognises that [the complainant] lost a valuable opportunity to have the question of her contract renewal properly considered on the basis of a decision on her application for a P-2 field post. Accordingly, the complainant is entitled to material damages for the loss of opportunity to be considered for a contract renewal (see Judgments 2678, under 16 and 17, and 2873, under 10)."

  • Judgment 3588


    121st Session, 2016
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the amount of damages awarded by WHO following his internal appeal against the decision not to match him to a new position after the abolition of his post and to terminate his appointment.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "[T]he HBA’s recommendation that the complainant be awarded his P5 salary, including all benefits, entitlements and compensation for home leave as of [...] until the expiration of his P5 fixed-term contract [...] was an appropriate approach to the material damages which should have been awarded to the complainant. From that amount should be deducted any monies earned from other employment during that period. The complainant says there was none. However this assessment of the material damages would not include the WHO component of the health insurance contribution payable over that period nor the amounts which otherwise would have been payable by way of pension contributions (see, for example, Judgment 3153, under 4-6)."

    Summary: The complainant challenges the EPO’s refusal to send his mail to an address, which is not the declared residence address in his last retirement questionnaire.

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "The unjustified delay of over three years between the filing of the appeal and the submission of the EPO’s position constitutes in itself an egregious delay which merits an award of damages. Taking into consideration both the excessive length of the delay and the fact that it is not apparent that this delay had a significant adverse impact on the complainant, the Tribunal sees fit to award moral damages in the amount of 800 euros (see Judgment 3160, under 17)."

    Summary: The complainant challenges the EPO’s alleged failure to take an express decision on his claim for the reimbursement of the travel expenses that he incurred in respect of his children upon leaving the service of the EPO.

    Considerations 6-7

    Extract:

    "With respect to the claim for moral damages for delay, this claim is not irreceivable because it was not raised in the internal appeal, as the EPO argues. It is in fact a claim by which the complainant seeks a remedy for inordinate or unreasonable delay in the internal appeal process itself, for which the Tribunal has in many instances awarded moral damages. [...]

    Consideration 20

    Consideration 16

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    "[T]he complainant is entitled to moral damages for the failings in the reassignment process. Reinstatement is impracticable and inappropriate. The complainant lost the full benefit of the opportunity created by the Rules to be reassigned to another post within WHO. That is a valuable opportunity.
