    126th Session, 2018

    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to refuse her request to withdraw her resignation.

    Judgment keywords

    Keywords:

    resignation;

    Considerations 5, 6, 9

    Extract:

    The central legal issue, the validity of the resignation, is also, in a sense, a threshold issue. If the complainant cannot demonstrate the resignation was legally ineffective then the impugned decision is of no legal consequence or significance. [...]
    One authoritative judgment of the Tribunal on these questions is Judgment 856. Several related principles emerge from this judgment. The first is that a resignation comes into effect when it is accepted by the employer. The second is that once the resignation has come into effect it cannot be withdrawn unless the offer to resign was tainted with some flaw that renders it void. If the alleged flaw is that the individual purporting to resign was suffering from a psychological illness, then the individual, as a complainant, has to adduce precise, cogent and consistent evidence to show that the consent was lacking. [...]
    The complaint is unfounded. The complainant offered to resign and the offer was accepted. The legal effect was a resignation from which the complainant could not resile and which cannot now be voided.

  • Judgment 2285


    96th Session, 2004
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "[T]he Tribunal considers that it need not ascertain whether procedural irregularities were committed by the Ombudsperson, since the latter merely put forward a proposal which did not constitute a decision and which was addressed exclusively to the complainant, inviting her to relinquish her management responsibilities, that is, to resign. The only decision the complainant can challenge is precisely that which she alleges was unlawful, namely the decision [taken on behalf of the Director-General to release her from her position], which was independent of the Ombudsperson's proposal. Even though there is no doubt that it was the outcome of the Ombudsperson's investigations which led the [...] authorities to take the challenged decision, the lawfulness of that decision must be assessed independently of the Ombudsperson's proposal."

    93rd Session, 2002

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 23

    Extract:

    The Invalidity Committee was constituted of two doctors respectively appointed by the organization and the complainant and of a third member chosen by mutual agreement between the first two doctors. The doctor appointed by the complainant resigned. He appointed another but challenges the fact that the third member was not rechosen. "It is clear [...] that if a member is replaced, the appointment should be by the same person or persons who originally appointed the member who has left. The complainant is wrong to liken the Invalidity Committee to an arbitral body that must always have representation from each side and must always be presided by someone chosen by the parties' representatives. The Invalidity Committee is a statutory body and once regularly constituted, it has the powers vested in it by the rules. The appointments to it do not become invalid simply by reason of the departure of a member."

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

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    The provisions of the Statute and Staff Rules aiming at protecting staff members against termination in the course of sick leave do not prevent an organization from accepting, during such leave, the letter of resignation of a staff member, if the latter wrote his letter of his own free will.

    81st Session, 1996
    United Nations Industrial Development Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    The complainant was assigned to a joint service of the United Nations and UNIDO at Vienna. The service was under UNIDO management. But "it was the United Nations that offered him both the appointments which he had while he was at Vienna, and it was to the United Nations that he addressed his acceptance of each offer, thereby concluding a contract of employment with the UN. Indeed that is why he addressed his letter of resignation to the Secretary-General of the UN. True, he addressed it to the Director-General of UNIDO as well, but that was merely in recognition of UNIDO's supervision of his work and did not mean that the un had ceased to be his employer. In sum, he was an official, not of UNIDO, but of the UN."

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "The complainant seeks an order cancelling his resignation, which the organisation accepted. [...] This claim is irreceivable because he has failed to avail himself of the internal means of redress provided under [...] the service regulations and so to satisfy the condition of receivability laid down in Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 14

    Extract:

    Having held that an official might act in his capacity as representative of the Staff Association in furtherance of common interests before the Tribunal, the Tribunal holds that "it is only fair to acknowledge a similar right for a staff member who, while defending his own case, is also pursuing some particular common interest that the Service Regulations safeguard", even after resigning.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant argues that his resignation was merely received, not accepted by the organisation. the tribunal observes that the terms of the recipient's written response leave no room for doubt: the resignation was well and truly accepted by the organisation.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "there are also several general principles that will apply even where there is no express rule, and one of them is that the offer may be withdrawn so long as it has not come into effect through acceptance by the employer."

    Keywords:

    acceptance; application for quashing; offer; resignation;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    Keywords:

    discretion; executive head; notice; resignation;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "a resignation that has taken effect is final and may not be withdrawn unless the offer was tainted with some flaw that makes it void. there will ordinarily be such a flaw if the staff member underwent compelling outside pressure. [...] but more commonly the pressure will come from the employer."

    application for quashing; condition; lack of consent; offer; resignation;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant altered an appraisal report on her own performance. after being criticised for her conduct by a supervisor, she tendered her resignation. the complainant claims to have acted under pressure. in the view of the tribunal, she had ample time to consider whether or not to resign. her resignation is therefore valid.

  • Judgment 662


    56th Session, 1985

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

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "The complaint does not allege the non-observance of any term of appointment or of any staff regulation. The Tribunal is therefore not competent to hear it." The complainant tendered his resignation and discharged no further duties. He claims damages equivalent to the amount of his salary for the period from his resignation to what would have been the end of his contract. He considers that the organization treated him unfairly upon his departure.

  • Judgment 309


    38th Session, 1977
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    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:

    complainant; lack of consent; offer; resignation;

    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."

    complainant; consequence; lack of consent; resignation; supervisor; working relations;



  • Judgment 263


    35th Session, 1975
    International Patent Institute
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    in refusing to promote officials who had resigned the director-general did not draw any clearly mistaken conclusion from the situation of such officials. promotion may have two consequences: either a salary increase with new duties and greater responsibilities; or salary increase alone. "in the former case promotion would serve no purpose: the official who had resigned would remain for too short a time in the higher grade to which he had been promoted to perform the duties of the new post. in the latter case the decision not to promote the official is also warranted: ... [the] purpose [of promotion] is not merely to reward the official for past and present performance but also generally to encourage him to remain for a long period in the service of his employer."

    Keywords:

    consequence; organisation; promotion; purpose; refusal; resignation; separation from service;



  • Judgment 227


    32nd Session, 1974
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations

    Extract:

    the complainant notified the organization of his intention to resign if he were not appointed to a suitable post. while inviting him to apply for suitable positions in the usual way, the organization said that in the absence of notification to the contrary it accepted his resignation. the complainant confirmed his resignation and thereby "deprived himself of the right to reinstatement in the organization in his former post or in any other."

    Keywords:

    acceptance; complainant; consequence; offer; organisation; resignation; separation from service;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    by submitting his resignation, the complainant deprived himself of the right to reinstatement in the organization. "as it is free from illegality, the decision not to reinstate the complainant does not entitle him to any compensation."

    Keywords:

    judicial review; organisation; refusal; reinstatement; resignation;



  • Judgment 158


    24th Session, 1970
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    As tendered by the complainant, his resignation was not in any way conditional. "Although he complains of having received no reply to his complaints and gives the submission of an appeal as the reason for his resignation, he does not indicate that the cessation of his service is intended to continue only for the duration of the appeals procedure." By accepting the complainant's resignation, the Director took a decision which was in no way contrary to the applicable rules.

    Keywords:

    acceptance; condition; grounds; resignation;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "Although the complainant's services terminated [...] as a result of his resignation, he was still entitled to challenge his grading during an earlier period."

    Keywords:

    cause of action; complaint; post classification; receivability of the complaint; resignation; separation from service;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "[A]s his resignation was validly accepted, [the complainant's] claims for reinstatement and for damages in default of reinstatement are equally unfounded."

    Keywords:

    acceptance; refusal; reinstatement; resignation;

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "The resignation of an official of an organization entails the termination of his appointment unless it is established that the resignation was not given voluntarily."

    consequence; exception; lack of consent; resignation; separation from service;



  • Judgment 89


    15th Session, 1965
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    The charges against the complainant warranted the Director-General's decision to initiate disciplinary proceedings. In offering him the choice between resignation and appearing before the Joint Committee, the Director-General acted freely and out of good-will. "It was open to the complainant, if he so desired, to defend himself against the charges preferred against him. The choice that lay before him was therefore entirely free."

    Keywords:

    disciplinary measure; disciplinary procedure; executive head; lack of consent; misconduct; proposal; resignation; right to reply; subsidiary;

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    The complainant contends that "undue influence was brought to bear upon him to secure his resignation, thus implying infringement by the Director-General of a general rule of law which is equally applicable to the international civil service. On this reasoning, the present complaint is among those that the Tribunal is competent to hear."

    Keywords:

    competence of tribunal; international civil service principles; lack of consent; resignation;
