  • Judgment 1118


    71st Session, 1991
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 18 and 19

    Extract:

    the complainants seek the quashing of a 1.25 per cent "reduction" in the repayment of education expenses in keeping with a decision taken by eurocontrol's permanent commission to bring in a 5 per cent differential between net pay at eurocontrol and net pay in the european communities. the tribunal holds that "the objection that there has been no statement of the reasons is unsound: the staff have known all along the reasons for the adjustments, which have been fully discussed in the context of the cases. there was therefore no need to state reasons for the individual decisions [...] the tribunal may [not] review the reasons of policy underlying the general decision." besides, the reasons fall within the ambit of article 65.

    "according to articles 62 and 67 of the staff regulations one item of pay is family allowances; they include the education allowance, of which education expenses form a part, and, contrary to what the complainants make out, the fact that such expenses are paid on the strength of supporting evidence does not make the education allowance as a whole any less an item of pay."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 19 and 20

    Extract:

    the complainants seek payment of interest on the arrears paid them after applying revised weightings. the tribunal stresses that "article 64 [of the staff regulations] confers wide discretion on the administration in determining whether there is good reason to adjust pay and what factors to bear in mind for the purpose. it has to make comparative assessments in working out the weightings, and so the figures it arrives at are bound to be lump-sum approximations [...] so there can be no specific amount due, and yielding interest, until the competent authority has reached its decision."

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    following a periodic review of the weightings applicable to pay, the complainants were paid arrears on the strength of the revised weightings. they claim interest on those amounts on the grounds that the method for adjusting pay contains a built-in delay. the plea fails. "the system of period adjustment according to criteria applied a posteriori means that any action taken will perforce be retroactive. [...] adjustment is a continuous process over any given period, and it is reasonable to regard the figures that are taken at the end of that period as properly applying to the whole of it."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    the complainant submits that the decision not to renew his appointment was tainted with breach of his right of defence since he failed to get a copy of a report concerning him by the joint disciplinary committee. the tribunal observes that such reports are confidential under rule 110.2(e). "besides, the report is immaterial, even in the present context, because the committee recommended no disciplinary action and the stated reasons for termination were financial stringency and abolition of post."

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    the complainant, whose post was abolished, alleges that the organization committed a mistake of law by keeping him in its employ under a long string of short-term appointments. he relies on what he says was unesco's established practice of extending fixed-term appointments for never less than one year. the tribunal observes that there is no rule binding the organization to a minimum or maximum period of extension and that the complainant does not offer a shred of evidence of the practice he says it followed.

    Considerations 6 and 7, Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant argues that his post was not abolished for reasons of financial stringency. what he alleges prompted his dismissal was a desire to get rid of him, and that led to abuse of authority. he cites as evidence of this unesco's extension of his appointments over a five-year span for only very short periods. the tribunal finds no evidence of liability on unesco's part: the organization did its utmost to seek other employment for him.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "the reason why the complainant was given an unsatisfactory rating for conduct was that, as he does not deny, he had disclosed his superior's 'day'. that was a clear breach of regulation 1.7", which bars officials from communicating information known to them by reason of their official position which has not been made public.

    Considerations 6 and 7

    Extract:

    the complainant wants the tribunal to set aside two reports which describe his work as unsatisfactory as well as decisions to suspend his salary step increase and not to extend his appointment. he alleges bad faith and abuse of authority on the part of the administration. there is conflicting evidence. "a complainant must discharge the burden of proof and satisfy an internal appeal body or the tribunal that the balance of probability is that his allegations of fact are true. [...] the tribunal has [...] considered all the evidence, including a transcript of a recording the complainant secretly made of a conversation with his supervisor. it finds that he has not discharged the burden of proving his allegations".

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    the complainant, an official of the world bank, was hired by unesco to work for a limited period in a "co- operative programme". his appointment was not extended. he "had no entitlement to any extension since according to staff rule 104.6 a fixed-term appointment ends automatically on expiry, without notice or indemnity, and carries no expectation of renewal: his mere expectation of renewal did not confer any right on him in law."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    the complainant, whose appointment had not been extended, "accuses the organization of acting arbitrarily because it made no effort to find a position for him, though it did seek to place other members of [his division]. but the explanation is that he had the possibility of reinstatement in the world bank - and indeed he himself arranged [...] to go back to the bank - whereas the other members [of the division] presumably had no such alternative to fall back on. in the circumstances there was no abuse of authority or arbitrariness in the organization's stand."

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    the complainant failed to have her post upgraded. her plea of disregard of relevant facts fails. "the essential point is that, though the complainant's duties might warrant an upgrading if she showed a higher degree of responsibility, initiative and judgment, it was proper to take the view that she did not, and therefore her post does not warrant the higher grade." the tribunal holds that, despite the difference of opinion, there was evidence on which such a judgment could be based and will not substitute its own view on the matter for the organization's.

    Keywords:

    criteria; different appraisals; disregard of essential fact; grade; judicial review; post classification;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    after carrying out a staff review the organization confirmed the grading of the complainant's post at grade 5. "the reasons for cern's decision in this case are evident from the file, the implication in the words used being that it accepted the 'views and recommendations' on the file that there should be no upgrading."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the complainant, having tendered her resignation, was mistakenly paid a termination indemnity upon the transfer of interpol's headquarters to lyons. the organisation ordered repayment. "...the secretary general's decision to claim the sum back from her is a discretionary one. in deciding whether to demand full or part repayment he takes accounts of such factors as the staff member's good or bad faith, the sort of mistake that has been made, the organization's own and the staff member's negligence and the inconvenience which the demand, made necessary by the organization's own oversight, will put the staff member to. so the tribunal will exercise only a limited power of review over the decision."

    Summary

    Extract:

    in judgment 996 the tribunal set aside the decision to dismiss the complainant and ordered his reinstatement "with full arrears of salary and allowances". in execution of that judgment the eso reinstated him as a member of its health insurance scheme as from the date of dismissal and deducted the corresponding premiums from his pay. the complainant's objections to the deductions are mistaken. the intention of judgment 996 was, as far as possible, to put the complainant in the same position as if he had not been dismissed. the tribunal is satisfied that in respect of health insurance the organisation has complied with the letter and the spirit of the judgment.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    after recommending that the complainant should get a personal promotion the selection board held a further meeting at the instance of the deputy director-general and shifted ground. the tribunal holds that "in only two cases may an internal body be asked to think again. one is where something unforeseeable and of decisive moment occurs after it has reported, and the other is where there comes to light some fact or evidence, again of cardinal importance, that it did not know of or could not have known of before it reported." since those conditions were not met in the instant case the decision is tainted with a procedural flaw and must be quashed. the complainant is sent back to the organisation for his case to be reviewed.

    advisory body; case reopened; case sent back to organisation; complaint allowed; condition; decision quashed; flaw; internal appeals body; new fact; organisation; procedural flaw; request; selection board;

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    in keeping with the scheme for "personal promotion" brought in by circular 334 "promotion is at the director-general's discretion, his decision is subject only to limited review, and it may not ordinarily be set aside unless there is some particular fatal flaw. breach of a procedural rule is such a flaw."

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    the complainant objects to the decision to refuse him personal promotion under circular 334. the tribunal holds that the fact "that the explanation came in this case from the director-general himself [rather than from the selection board as required by paragraph 14 of the circular] is not [...] a procedural flaw. paragraph 14 is unenforceable because the board can explain only its own recommendation and because the text might require it to explain even a decision that ran counter to that recommendation."

    Summary

    Extract:

    after retiring from the organization the complainant returned under a contract as a consultant. the letter of acceptance he signed indicated that he was being recruited locally. he argues that as a swedish citizen whom the who contacted in stockholm he was entitled to non-local status and the payment of a daily subsistence allowance. the organization submits, rightly, that in putting his signature to the contract he accepted the terms of the offer.

    Keywords:

    Considerations 5 and 6

    Extract:

    "although [who] manual provision ii.12.320 [...] says that consultants shall be paid the subsistence allowance applicable to the country of the duty station, staff rule 1330 empowers the director-general to 'appoint consultants without regard to the provisions of the other sections of the rules'. so the director-general's offer of an appointment as a consultant without the per diem allowance was quite lawful anyway."

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    the complainant, who joined cern as a fireman, was transferred from a night-shift post to one confined to day work. the offer of the new post said that staff who gave up shift work could be compensated for loss of the shift allowance at digressive rates over three years. the director- general decided to grant him compensation over a period of only one year. the tribunal sets the decision aside on the grounds that "an offer of appointment holds good until it is withdrawn or accepted in good faith and without qualification, when it amounts to a contract."

    Extract:

    the complainant was asked to report to an expert medical examination to examine his fitness for shift work. he objects to questions the organization put to the expert. though the complaint is receivable, the tribunal dismisses it on the merits since the material questions were relevant to the dispute and did not deprive the complainant of any safeguard. once the medical expert has reported and the administrative decision been taken, the complainant may submit a further complaint bearing on the dispute as a whole.

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant claims the expatriation allowance provided under article 72 of the epo service regulations for officials who, at the time of their appointment, have not been continuously resident in their duty station for the preceding three years. as he does not meet that requirement he wants the time he spent in the federal republic of germany to be discounted and he relies on the german wording of the provision, which refers to the official's being "permanently established" rather than "resident" at the duty station as in the english and french versions. the english and french versions being quite explicit, the german version must be interpreted in a way that reconciles all three.

    Summary

    Extract:

    in judgment 963 the tribunal set aside in part an initial reduction in the rate of refund of educational expenses at eurocontrol insofar as the reduction was given retroactive effect. the present complaints challenge the second reduction. recalling a recurring principle in the case law (see judgments 726 and 825) that "a reduction in pay may not be so great as to disrupt the structure of the terms of appointment and that there must be sound reasons for it", the tribunal orders further submissions in which the defendant organisation shall explain in greater detail the favourable effects of the measure.

    the complainant's fees for difficult confinement were refunded at the 100 per cent rate up to a maximum limit reckoned by likening the treatment she received to a surgical operation. though the tribunal finds nothing wrong with setting maximum limits in general it holds that there was no valid limit at the material time on costs incurred for difficult confinements and that the complainant was entitled to the refund of her confinement expenses in full.

    under article 72 of the staff regulations governing officials and of the general conditions of employment of the agency the director general is "empowered to do whatever is needed to make the [health] scheme workable and financially sound, provided that he abides by the provisions of the staff regulations, and the cost is shared between organisation and staff in line with the principle of solidarity. that is why it is a proper precaution to set maximum limits on the costs of some forms of treatment and to require prior permission in some cases." setting the rate of refund at 100 per cent for certain forms of treatment, including confinement, does not bar maximum limits.
