  • Judgment 324


    39th Session, 1977
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the impugned decision was a refusal to renew the complainant's contract. "that is a decision of a discretionary nature and one which the tribunal may quash only if..." [etc.]

    Keywords:

    contract; discretion; fixed-term; judicial review; non-renewal;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "use of a computer by an unqualified or unscrupulous person may lead to errors or breaches of confidence. that is why it is important to define exactly the duties of the staff of a body such as the international computing centre and require every single employee to show strict respect for the limits of his duties. the complainant was employed as an operator and in exceeding his functions as such failed in a basic duty. in other words, whatever the actual consequences of his conduct may have been, it warranted the decision not to renew his appointment."

    Keywords:

    contract; fixed-term; grounds; misconduct; non-renewal; staff member's duties;

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "it is ... immaterial whether the complainant caused his employer any material prejudice. what matters is that he committed a breach of duty which warranted the decision not to renew his appointment."

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

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "bearing in mind that the salary scales are established in consultation and on the basis of [certain] guiding principles, it is ... [the director-general's] duty in making revisions to have regard to the guiding principles. subject to this, his power to fix salary scales under [the applicable provision] is a discretionary one."

    Keywords:

    amendment; discretion; organisation's duties; salary; scale;

    Consideration 34

    Extract:

    "...when the organization has calculated a payment of salary and announced it, the officials entitled to it acquire a right which the organization has no power to destroy."

    Keywords:

    acquired right; amount; salary;

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    it is not the case that "a decision of the council which, when executed, will inevitably have an effect upon an official's rights, ipso facto alters those rights from the moment it is made and before it is executed. ...it is the director-general, not the council, who vis-a-vis the official fixes his salary; this is so, whether or not in fixing the salary the director-general is required to conform with decisions of the council."

    Keywords:

    competence; decision; decision-maker; enforcement; executive head; general decision; legislative body; salary;

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    under the applicable provision, the director-general is required "to fix [general service] salary scales on the basis of the best prevailing conditions. this is an obligation of a very general character and the director-general has a very wide discretion as to how he will carry it out."

    Keywords:

    discretion; fleming principle; general service category; organisation's duties; salary; scale;

    Consideration 26

    Extract:

    "the conception of a legislative enactment, insofar as it applies to matters within the jurisdiction of the tribunal, means the power to alter unilaterally by general enactment the relationship created by the contract. the tribunal has recognised this power to the extent that it may affect those terms of the contract which appertain to the structure and functioning of the international civil service and to benefits of an impersonal nature and subject to variation, but not the the extent to which it purports to affect the individual terms and conditions of an official in consideration of which he accepted appointment."

    Keywords:

    acquired right; amendment; complaint allowed; contract; decision quashed; discretion; judicial review; legislative body; limits; staff regulations and rules;

    Consideration 29

    Extract:

    "...the comparison of wage rates, especially when they include fringe benefits, is a difficult task, which may often involve delicate choice between several solutions of almost equal merit. ... the text to be interpreted is a set of principles and not of precise requirements. where it is alleged that the director-general has made an error of law in their interpretation, the tribunal will consider the text broadly and will be careful not to put the director-general's discretion into a legal straitjacket."

    Keywords:

    discretion; fringe benefits; interpretation; judicial review; rate; salary;

    Consideration 28

    Extract:

    according to the organization, the modification of the salary schedule was decided by a legislative enactment of the council. if this is true, "it means that there is no control whatever over the dealings of an executive body such as the council with the staff of the organization ... since the director-general in his dealings with the staff is subject to the control of the council, it means that an official's contract gives him no rights which the council cannot nullify and in particular that he is paid his salary ex gratia and not as a matter of contract. in the opinion of the tribunal this is not the law."

    Keywords:

    amendment; contract; enforcement; legislative body; right; salary; scale;

    Consideration 25

    Extract:

    according to the organization "the decision impugned was taken by one of the governing bodies of the fao in the exercise of its constitutional powers and represented a legislative enactment. ...the term 'governing body' is not a term used in the constitution of the fao and there is no definition of what it means." the council is the executive organ of the conference, which is the organization's supreme body. the constitution gives the council such powers as the conference may delegate to it. "there is no assertion in the organization's reply of the delegation of any power that would justify the council in depriving any official of any part of the salary to which under the regulations he or she is entitled."

    Keywords:

    competence; decision-maker; executive body; reduction; salary;

    Summary

    Extract:

    under the "guiding principles for the determination or revision of conditions of service of staff in the general service category" the reckoning of interim adjustments is straightforward. whenever the local wage index goes up by 5 per cent an official's salary should also go up by 5 per cent. the complainant had her increase lowered to 1 per cent. the tribunal finds no evidence in the file that the progressive increase in italian income tax or that fringe benefits were behind the reduction. it holds that the reduction was either arbitrary or designed to serve some purpose of which it is ignorant.

    Keywords:

    adjustment; fringe benefits; general service category; reduction; salary; scale;

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

    Summary

    Extract:

    for reasons of a personal nature, the complainant waited 6 years before informing the organisation of the birth of an illegitimate child. he claimed retroactive payment of allowances from the date of the birth. the tribunal finds that he has lost his right to retroactive payment, since he did not act within a reasonable period of time. to claim a lump-sum payment, after waiting several years, is to disregard the purpose of the provisions on family allowance.

    Keywords:

    dependent child; family allowance; non-retroactivity; purpose; reasonable time; request; time limit;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "in accordance with article ii of its statute the tribunal hears complaints of breach of terms of appointment or of staff regulations and staff rules. in reaching its decisions it construes such texts by the accepted methods of legal interpretation."

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "it is immaterial that according to [the relevant provision] an official may not waive his right to remuneration. ...it is through his own delay that he may lose his right to family allowance, and not because of any express or implied waiver on his part."

  • Judgment 321

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

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the complainant's contract, a fixed-term appointment, expired. "the very fact that the director-general gave him several short extensions of appointment shows that the organization did indeed try to keep him on the staff by granting him an appointment of longer duration. although he applied unsuccessfully for many vacancies, it was for the director-general alone, since he is responsible for the efficient running of the organization, to decide whether to offer the complainant any of those vacancies. besides, because of his grade [d.1] few posts could be offered to him."

  • Judgment 320


    39th Session, 1977
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "a decision taken by the director-general, either during or at the end of the probation period, not to confirm the staff member's appointment is one which falls within his discretion and accordingly the tribunal will interfere with it only on strictly limited grounds..."

    Keywords:

    confirmation of appointment; discretion; judicial review; probation;

    Considerations 12, 13 and 17

    Extract:

    the complainant was denied confirmation of his appointment for unsatisfactory service. the regional director had nothing to say on the matter. had he examined the evidence, he would have observed that the performance appraisals were of questionable value. neither the evaluations of the complainant's first level supervisor (which diverged inexplicably from earlier reports), nor those of the chief of department (which merely echoed the supervisor's views) afforded a basis for the decision. as a result the director general's decision must be quashed.

    Keywords:

    complaint allowed; damages; decision quashed; different appraisals; flaw; probation; probation report; reinstatement; satisfactory service; termination; unsatisfactory service; work appraisal;

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    the tribunal "does not invariably order ... reinstatement ... since it may present practical difficulties. in the present case ... the complainant's long and excellent record of service to the [organization], enhanced by his conduct in ... trying circumstances ... and by the clarity and moderation of his submission to the tribunal ... have shown him to be an officer whom the organization should be sorry to lose."

    Keywords:

    consequence; decision quashed; probation; reinstatement; termination;

    Consideration 17

    Extract:

    "in reaching the decision that the complainant's performance was unsatisfactory, the director-general and/or the officials whose conclusions he accepted, relied exclusively on the opinion of [the first level supervisor]. they disregarded the factors that made this opinion unreliable. ... they disregarded the fact that the conditions under which the complainant was working were not in accordance with his post description." lastly, they drew false conclusions from the first level supervisor's report. the decision of the director-general must therefore be set aside.

    Keywords:

    mistaken conclusion; post description; probation; probation report; termination; unsatisfactory service;

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    "the starting point for any criticism of [the first level supervisor's] judgment is that he is unable to explain the discrepancy between it and all the complainant's previous appraisal reports except upon the hypothesis that the latter were all wrong. this is highly unlikely. they extended over eleven years and came from seven ... different representatives. ...his evaluation of the complainant's work cannot be regarded as unbiased."

    Keywords:

    bias; different appraisals; flaw; period; supervisor; work appraisal;



  • Judgment 319


    39th Session, 1977
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "non-local or international status carries with it certain benefits appropriate to the fact that the member has left his own country to live, presumably temporarily, in another. such benefits are non-resident's allowance, education grants, home leave and travel allowances, etc."

    Keywords:

    allowance; non-local status;

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    the rules exclude from the material benefits two categories of officials. the first consists of those who adopt the nationality of the duty station, who may be regarded as having broken their links with their country of origin. having changed their way of living, they are no longer in need of the special benefits. the other category is made up of local officials who give up the nationality of the duty station. they do not thereby change their way of living and so are not qualified for benefits framed for those who are moving from one country to another.

    Keywords:

    amendment; consequence; local status; nationality; non-local status; status of complainant;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    fao manual section 311.112 provides for the possibility of a staff member's status at the time of recruitment to be modified at a later stage. in context this "is an introductory provision or recital to be distinguished from an operative rule; it is informative and not normative. this is shown also by its language. it neither itself requires anything to be done nor confers a power of command on any person. it is merely pointing out ... that a change of status may be caused by a number of factors..."

    Organization rules reference: PARAGRAPH 311.112 FAO MANUAL

    Keywords:

    amendment; condition; criteria; local status; non-local status; provision; staff regulations and rules; status of complainant;

    Summary

    Extract:

    when she was recruited, the complainant had local status. she later married, acquired a new nationality by naturalisation and lost her original nationality. the tribunal holds that her status is dependent on her nationality at the time of appointment. according to the relevant provisions, a change of nationality does not in itself entail a change in status. the complainant is not entitled to the benefits provided for officials who leave their own country to live in another. the complaint is dismissed.

    Keywords:

    amendment; appointment; consequence; local status; marital status; nationality; non-local status;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    the text cited "is merely pointing out ... that a change of status may be caused by a number of factors which it specifies and of which a change of nationality is one. it does not mean that every rule dealing with a change of nationality has to be interpreted, even if contrary to its express words, to effect a change of status."

  • Judgment 318


    39th Session, 1977
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations

    Extract:

    under the applicable provision "and the general principles of international public service, the provisional nature of his position denies a probationer the safeguards enjoyed by an established official or by the holder of a fixed-term appointment or of one without limit of time... the director-general may dismiss him if satisfied that he does not have the right qualifications."

    Keywords:

    discretion; international civil service principles; probation; safeguard; termination;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "the main grounds for the impugned decision are that the complainant, who would brook no challenge to his views, proved unable to obey his supervisor's instructions and adapt to the methods of the organization. it is clear from the dossier that those grounds are factually correct and are not tainted with any of the flaws ... which would entitle the tribunal to interfere."

    Keywords:

    insubordination; judicial review; probation; termination; working relations;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "...since the purpose of probation is to find out whether the probationer is suited for service and should have his appointment confirmed, the director-general may dismiss him if satisfied that he does not have the right qualifications."

    Keywords:

    probation; purpose; qualifications; termination; unsatisfactory service;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "the tribunal is competent to review the lawfulness of any decision by the director-general... in particular it may determine whether that decision [is tainted by any of the flaws which entitle the tribunal to interfere. the tribunal may not ... replace with its own the executive head's opinion of a staff member's performance, conduct or fitness for international service."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    according to its regulations, the provident scheme is a fund within the meaning of the swiss civil code "and it is therefore an independent legal entity distinct from [the organisation] itself." had the complainant wished to impugn a decision of the secretary of the fund, "she ought to have brought her complaint against the scheme, not the [organisation]. but the complaint is brought against the [organisation], not the scheme, and so would be irreceivable."

    Keywords:

    competence of tribunal; decision; domestic law; insurance; receivability;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the organisation and the provident scheme jointly concluded a contract with the complainant. "according to article vii of its statute the tribunal hears complaints which challenge decisions and decisions alone, and that excludes contracts, for example. unless the complainant is impugning a decision her complaint is irreceivable. if the complainant wished to avoid or vary the contract ... she ought first to have asked the other parties and called for decisions from them on the matter. those are the only kind of decisions she might have impugned before the tribunal."

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "the clauses [of the letter of appointment] are clearly worded and formally establish that the salary stated in the contract was exclusive of any allowance, indemnity or additional sum of any kind. hence the complainant may not claim a 'separation allowance' since none was provided for in his contract. in any case no such allowance existed at the time the contract was concluded."

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "according to a principle of international public service salary is generally payable only for services rendered, and so the [organisation] was right to refuse to pay a staff member who went on strike for the period in which he did not work."

    Keywords:

    deduction; entitlement for service rendered; international civil service principles; salary; strike;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the director "did not act unlawfully in abolishing the spanish-language post held by the complainant, ... creating a new english-language post and preserving a french-language post. he made an appraisal of fact which, on these points, must prevail."

    Keywords:

    abolition of post; appraisal of facts; discretion; organisation's interest; reorganisation;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "...the allegedly misleading advice given to the director-general about the complainant's abilities and qualifications can have played no part in the impugned decision, which was taken for budgetary reasons cogently explained by the organisation in the course of the proceedings."

    Keywords:

    abolition of post; budgetary reasons; grounds;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "in the circumstances, the appeals committee's finding that [the complainant] was ... wholly commendable and that her retention in employment would have served the [organization's] interests was no reason for the director-general, who bears sole responsibility for the smooth running of the organization, not to exercise his authority and, on the expiry of the complainant's appointment, either refuse her a new appointment ... or conclude a new contract with her or with [someone with different qualifications]."

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "the circumstances in which the complainant was transferred are such as to warrant payment of damages for the moral prejudice he suffered. damages will be fairly set at 10,000 swiss francs."

    Keywords:

    amount; damages; moral injury; transfer;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the transfer decision was a preventive measure because a close dependence of one staff member on another was inadmissible between officials responsible for applying financial control "...the decision to transfer [the complainant] was made upon a hypothesis which never in fact matured ... all the complainant did was, quite correctly, to ask the opinion of his superiors" upon what was a proposal [to open a joint bank account with a colleague] and to drop the matter when they expressed disapproval. "hence it appears that that decision drew clearly mistaken conclusions from the facts and should therefore be quashed."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "this was a decision which fell within the discretion of the director-general and therefore the tribunal's power of review is limited to certain grounds of which the only one here relevant would be an improper motivation. the main reason why the complainant's contract was not renewed was that his superiors considered that he was not the type of person who could work within a team. they may have been right or wrong about this, but a careful study of the dossier does not indicate the existence of any improper motive or of any other ground which could justify the intervention of the tribunal."

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the complainant's resignation, "which he gave of his own free will and without duress, was fully valid in law. it may have been given somewhat lightly, but the complainant is alone responsible and that fact does not vitiate its legal validity."

    Keywords:

    Considerations

    Extract:

    it appears that "because of her attitude [the secretary] ought long before to have been compulsorily transferred ... and the complainant [as her supervisor] behaved with great and unfailing propriety. but it cannot be said that the effect of [the secretary's] regrettable behaviour and of the ... director's equally regrettable inaction was either to put the complainant in a position which in practice precluded his continuing as chief of unit ... or to impair his free will."

    Extract:

    "paragraph 5 [of article ii] in the english text refers to non-observance of 'the terms of appointment', but in this context the word 'appointment' is not in the opinion of the tribunal to be restricted to the narrow sense of a formal appointment. it must be treated as embracing a contract to make an appointment and in this sense it is consistent with the french text, 'contrat d'engagement'."

    Extract:

    complainant relies on an interview with an official acting as the spokesman of the organisation "and upon the previous correspondence between himself and the organisation. it is quite often the case that, when a contract of this sort has been concluded, it will be followed by a formal document; in the case of a large organisation which is accustomed to use its own forms, there will almost certainly be a letter of appointment. this does not mean that there can be no binding contract until the letter of appointment..."

    Keywords:

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    there can be a binding contract before a letter of appointment has been issued. "there is a binding contract if there is manifest on both sides an intention to contract and if all the essential terms have been settled and if all that remains to be done is a formality which requires no further agreement."

    "...there is a clear distinction between a contract to appoint and the appointment itself, and it is normal to have an interval between the two so as to allow for the preparation of the formal documents. the payment of salary and the start of the official's duties, including the duty to travel to his place of work, would naturally be contemporaneous and begin on a date to be fixed by the letter of appointment."

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "what makes it all the harder to account for such a difference in assessment within the space of ten months is that there is not a single document in the dossier which reveals the true reasons and no particular fact which explains why the assessment of the complainant was so utterly different." the director-general's representative provided an explanation for the tribunal. "... that explanation of the impugned decision is belated and amounts to mere allegations which are not borne out by any document in the dossier." the non-renewal is quashed.

    Keywords:

    appraisal of facts; different appraisals; flaw; grounds; mistaken conclusion; work appraisal;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the complete turn around in assessments of the complainant's work within the space of ten months is unexplainable. the organisation's belated explanations are not borne out by the evidence. "hence, although the impugned decision cannot be said to have been taken for reasons contrary to the interests of the [service], it is clear at least that the decision drew clearly mistaken conclusions from the facts and should therefore be quashed."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the complainants contend that they were not informed of the criteria and recommendations for promotions drawn up by the careers committee. the requested documents have been circulated to the staff and this grievance therefore fails "the texts were notified after the original memoranda, but before the rejoinders had been lodged: ... the complainants were able to refer to those texts in the course of the proceedings and so their right to a hearing has not been infringed."

    Keywords:

    case pending; criteria; disclosure of evidence; no cause of action; promotion board; right to reply;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    one of the complainants contends that the careers committee for promotions included the chief of the personnel service, the official who had determined his performance mark, and that the committee's composition was therefore irregular. "but the fact that the chief of the personnel service should sit on such a committee is only normal. that official had a duty of impartiality both in marking the complainant's performance and in serving on the careers committee, and the two functions were therefore quite compatible."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "the function of [careers] committees is purely advisory, and the criteria they adopt have no binding force. hence, even though those criteria are not beyond reproach, the director-general's decisions are not tainted on that account."

    Keywords:

    advisory body; binding character; criteria; discretion; executive head; promotion; promotion board;

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    it is for the competent committees and the director-general to adapt the conditions of promotion to the requirements of the organisation. "hence those conditions may change from year to year and, since they do so, different staff members are differently treated according to the dates on which they receive promotion. where there are administrative reasons for such difference in treatment, it is no breach of the principle of equality."

    Keywords:
