  • Judgment 2362


    97th Session, 2004
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "By virtue of successive short-term contracts and extensions thereof, [the complainant's] service lasted for four years. The series of extensions and the grant of pension coverage and other benefits did not signify a change in her original status. Staff Rule 3.5(a) [...] cannot be invoked by her as proof that her appointment had been converted to fixed-term. While this provision ostensibly bestows on her 'the terms and conditions of a fixed-term appointment', it would be stretching the intent and signification of the provision to make the complainant a fixed-term official (see Judgment 1666). Had that been the purpose of the Rule, it would have explicitly so provided instead of stating that 'the terms and conditions of a fixed-term appointment [...] shall apply to [the official concerned]'. The complainant was recruited as a short-term official and remained one at all times."

    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "The revision of 1992 [of the general methodology which the International Civil Service Commission applies to salary service] did result in a reduction of outside employees' fringe benefits. [...] According to the survey [...] the goods and services taken into account were such that the effect of the change was slight. So the revision is not to be deemed unlawful on that score, the Commission exercised its discretion".

  • Judgment 1001


    68th Session, 1990
    United Nations Industrial Development Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainants, who are employed by unido in the general service category, seek the quashing of decisions setting their pay according to the new salary scales brought in as from 1 october 1987. they are objecting to the flat 2.4 per cent salary cut included in scales drawn up on the basis of an international civil service commission recommendation to account for the so-called "commissary benefit". unido staff regulation 6.5(a) says that the pay of staff in the general service category shall be based on "the best prevailing conditions of employment in the locality" (fleming principle). the tribunal holds that for the purpose of establishing parity with local pay the only relevant items are the ones defined in the staff regulations and financial rules of the organisation and paid out of its own funds. it follows that such a benefit as access to the commissary, which is provided for neither in the staff regulations nor in the financial rules and is a form of tax relief bestowed by the host country at no cost to the organisation, may not count in a comparison of this nature. the organization's decision to reduce salaries is unlawful and cannot stand. the cases are sent back to unido for the recalculation of their pay.

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainants, who are employed by the iaea in the general service category, seek the quashing of decisions setting their pay according to the new salary scales brought in as from 1 october 1987. they are objecting to the flat 2.4 per cent salary cut included in scales drawn up on the basis of an international civil service commission recommendation to account for the so-called "commissary benefit". annex ii.b.1 of the agency's provisional staff regulations says that the pay of staff in the general service category shall be based on "the best prevailing conditions of employment in the locality" (fleming principle). the tribunal holds that for the purpose of establishing parity with local pay the only relevant items are the ones defined in the staff regulations and financial rules of the organisation and paid out of its own funds. it follows that such a benefit as access to the commissary, which is provided for neither in the staff regulations nor in the financial rules and is a form of tax relief bestowed by the host country at no cost to the organisation, may not count in a comparison of this nature. the agency's decision to reduce salaries is unlawful and cannot stand. the cases are sent back to the agency for the recalculation of their pay.

  • Judgment 323


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

    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;

    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.
