  • Judgment 2389


    98th Session, 2005
    Universal Postal Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    The home country "is not necessarily that of the staff member's nationality. It could be the country with which he has the closest connection outside the country in which he is employed (see Judgment 1985, under 9), for instance the home country of his wife or of children whom he may have adopted or taken in but who he believes should keep up their connections with their native environment. Thus, according to Staff Rule 105.3, paragraph 4c, the Director General, in exceptional circumstances, may authorise a staff member to take home leave in a country other than the country of his nationality, provided that the latter can show that he maintained his normal residence in that other country for a prolonged period preceding his appointment, that he continues to have close family or personal ties in that country and that his taking home leave there would not be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of Staff Regulation 5.3."

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    who manual provision ii.2.430.2 was amended so as to restrict the possibility of having adopted blood relatives treated as dependants. the complainant submits that the amendment infringed an acquired right. the tribunal held that "the right which the amendment removed cannot be deemed to have constituted any essential part of the complainant's terms of appointment, and the allegation of breach of an acquired right is therefore unsound."

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    "if it is to be granted that the power to make a rule must embrace a power to amend it, then the director-general could unilaterally amend rule no. 7, but only by the exercise of his rule-making power. there is no document in the dossier [which explicitly shows him to have exercised] such a power."
