  • Judgment 3569


    121st Session, 2016
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Judgment keywords

    Keywords:

    complaint dismissed; special post allowance;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "The requisite conditions for an official to be recognised as performing duties on a temporary basis, in other words that she or he has received a “request by the administration” and that she or he “perform[s] duties of a post not being her or his ordinary post but a post at a higher grade”, are therefore not met. For this reason, the complainant has no grounds to contend that he should have received the differential allowance which he is claiming."

  • Judgment 2356


    97th Session, 2004
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    "[T]he payment of [a] special post allowance [...] is meant to financially reward a staff member for carrying out duties of a higher-level post, and the complainant is mistaken when she equates the payment with a positive assessment of her work."

  • Judgment 2314


    96th Session, 2004
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 23

    Extract:

    The post in respect of which the complainant was receiving a special post allowance was transferred but he has continued to perform the duties of the post. The Director-General has taken the view that transfer was equivalent to the abolition of the post and the allowance was terminated. "The principle of equal pay for work of equal value requires that, until a proper evaluation of the work performed by the complainant is carried out, he should be remunerated at a rate equivalent to that which he would have received by way of special post allowance for so long as he continues to perform all of the duties and responsibilities of the abolished post."

    Consideration 21

    Extract:

    The post in respect of which the complainant was receiving a special post allowance was transferred but he has continued to perform the duties of the post. The Director-General has taken the view that transfer was equivalent to the abolition of the post and the allowance was terminated. The relevant Manual provision "does prohibit payment of a special post allowance when a post has been abolished. However, it does not and cannot relieve an employer of its duty to ensure proper remuneration for extra duties and responsibilities discharged by an employee over and above those of the substantive post which he or she holds."

  • Judgment 1677


    84th Session, 1998
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 14

    Extract:

    ITU Staff Regulation 3.8 (a) lays down two conditions regarding the payment of a special post allowance: "one is that there must be a post at a higher grade than the claimant's; the other that the claimant must be performing the duties of the post. The Union adds a third condition, that the post description must be recent. But it is wrong: there is neither a written rule nor any particular basic principle that lays down that requirement."

  • Judgment 1594


    82nd Session, 1997
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The description and grading of the complainant's post dragged on for three-and-a-half years, and that was too long. As the Appeal Board held, "the administration has a duty to process promptly any claim to upgrading or to payment of special post allowance so that the official will not be left to suffer or to wonder what is going on."

    77th Session, 1994
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant pleads that he had been promoted from grade G.7 to P.2 "even though he was drawing the post allowance. It is immaterial whether or not the conditions in which he was granted the allowance met the requirements of Regulation 3.8: suffice it to observe that he acquiesced and amply reaped the benefit for most of the period during which he received the allowance. So the Tribunal cannot allow his plea that he was promoted."

  • Judgment 1093


    70th Session, 1991
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    At the time of his promotion to grade P.2 the complainant held a permanent appointment at grade G.5, as well as a fixed-term appointment at grade G.7 while drawing a special post allowance corresponding to P.2. The Tribunal holds that because he had never had a permanent appointment at G.7 his promotion was from G.5 to P.2.

  • Judgment 460


    46th Session, 1981
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    "The duty allowance is a temporary one. The staff member who receives it knows that he will continue to do so only as long as he is performing duties pertaining to a higher grade. If [...] he is assigned the duties of a higher grade because of promotion, there are no grounds for payment of the duty allowance".

  • Judgment 395


    43rd Session, 1980
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant, who held grade P.4, was appointed to a post for which he was to be paid a special post allowance corresponding to step 3 of grade P.5. He claimed promotion by direct selection to this grade. The decisions of the Director-General concerning his assignment and remuneration are not open to challenge. It appears from the provision respecting P.5 posts that "the Director-General enjoys discretionary authority and is free, but not obliged, to make an appointment by direct selection." The decision is not tainted with any of the flaws which entitle the Tribunal to interfere.

    Keywords:

    discretion; judicial review; promotion; special post allowance;



  • Judgment 265


    36th Session, 1976
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "The Director-General of the organisation, by virtue of the general authority conferred on him as such and in the interests of efficiency, is empowered to change the duties assigned to his subordinates provided that that change is not tainted with any flaw which entitles the Tribunal to interfere. In the present case it is not disputed that the change was not so tainted. In particular, it does not appear from the documents in the dossier that the impugned decision was taken from any motive other than a desire to promote work efficiency."
