    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    the general assembly of the united nations brought in a new scale of pensionable remuneration as from 1 january 1985. the scale, provided for in article 3.1.1 of the staff regulations, did not come into force until 1 april 1985. the complainant's pension, however, was reckoned according to the new scale between 1 january and 31 march 1985. the tribunal holds that "the ilo is undoubtedly bound [...] by the provisions of the staff regulations so long as they remain in force and is therefore liable towards the complainant for the breach of them. that its difficulty is due to the stand taken by the fund cannot alter its liability as employer towards its staff."

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "having put the scale of pensionable remuneration into its own staff regulations, the ilo has a duty to ensure the payment of the corresponding benefits. the sole purpose of pensionable remuneration is the reckoning of the pension, and if the pension discounts the scale in the staff regulations because the organisation has entrusted the matter to another body, the ilo must make good the loss to its staff, who are entitled to have the regulations applied. any difference of opinion there may be between the ilo and the fund is of no concern to the staff."

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "the notice [...] that prompted her internal appeal cannot in itself afford grounds for a complaint to the tribunal since it merely showed the amount of the benefit she would get according to the option she preferred, and that amount is determined by the united nations joint staff pension fund. if, as the ilo maintains, that is how the notice is to be construed, the tribunal may not review the lawfulness of the decision." however, the complainant takes a different line. the complainant's objections, based on article 8.2 of the ilo staff regulations, concern not the amount of her pension, but the fact that account was taken of the new scale of pensionable remuneration which the director-general had brought in as from 1 april 1985. therefore, the tribunal is competent.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    the complainant was employed by the credit union and became a staff member of the fao after the union became a part of that organization. he seeks to have his prior service with the credit union validated under the pension fund. the tribunal holds that in the circumstances of the case "his prior service with the union would not count except for within-grade increments. the union was not a member of the united nations joint staff pension fund and he had no entitlement to revalidation of his past service with the union."

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    "the reckoning of the pension depends on such factors as the cost of living, currency rates and rates of tax in the country of the pensioner's residence. those are variables that may preclude the creation of acquired rights. the financial plight of the fund has over the years become alarming."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    the complainant maintains that the fact of his having begun the probationary period at the beginning of his consultancy contract conferred on him the right to participation in the pension fund. but the probationary period and pensionable service do not necessarily coincide. the complainant was treated as a probationer from the material date because a provision of the staff rules stipulated that service prior to appointment could be credited towards completion of probation. the provision does not rule out application of the rule disqualifying a consultant for participation in the fund.

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the complainant maintains that his provisional acceptance of employment as a consultant was based on statements by three officials who acknowledged is right to participate in the pension fund from that time. there is no evidence of such statements. "the complainant has all the less reason to object to the absence of proof because at the material time the statements were made, it was open to him to ask the three officials to confirm in writing what they had said."

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    "when [the complainants] joined the staff they naturally took a keen interest in pension matters such as the amount of their contributions and of the pension itself, and perhaps they did acquire a right from the rules on such matters. but the rate of contribution by the [organisation] was a matter of lesser importance to them: its effect on their position was not direct enough for any acquired right to arise."

    Consideration 25

    Extract:

    "it is unnecessary to consider whether and to what extent, if at all, the director-general could be made responsible for the acts or omissions of the staff pension committee. what is quite clear is that he can have only a limited responsibility in its decisions."

    Keywords:

    decision; executive head; liability; staff pension committee; unjspf;

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    the tribunal believes that the complainant was expressly excluded, by his contract of employment, from participation in the pension fund. an alteration in the contract could be made only by mutual consent. the tribunal treats a letter addressed to the complainant as "an offer, which the organization was rightly confident would be accepted to remove the exclusion clause."

    Keywords:

    amendment to the rules; contract; offer; organisation; participation excluded; pension; unjspf;

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    the complainant received a form, summarising for the needs of the organisation the elements of his contract. the heading "pensions" was marked "not applicable". the complainant fulfilled the required conditions for participation in the fund; the tribunal therefore considers that the expression in question could be justified only if participation was excluded by the contract. the existing contract was silent about pension rights. the expression is "only making explicit what is implied in the contract already executed."

    Keywords:

    contract; participation excluded; pension; unjspf;

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    a new provision as well as an [indirect] amendment to his contract allowed the participation of the complainant in a pension fund. he may not validate prior service because his earlier participation was specifically excluded under the terms of his contract of employment, such a situation having been provided for by the material provisions.

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

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "it is of course open to argument whether there is any duty upon the organization to give correct information in matters relating to a staff member's rights in the fund, and if so, whether the information given is correct or not. ... but this is an issue ... on which the director-general has never [decided]. ...it was one which called for a new decision." insofar as it concerns this information, the complaint is receivable.

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    the organization "is not bound to grant appointments in such terms as to confer on staff members maximum benefit from the fund. on the contrary, although it is of course required to take account of the legitimate interests of staff members on recruitment, in doing so it cannot overlook its own interests."

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    the refusal of the complainant's request to extend his contract "deprives him of his pension entitlements. it therefore has substantial effects on the financial interests of a staff member whose services were consistently regarded by [the organisation] as satisfactory."

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

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "when the complainant was reappointed ... the officials of the organization did not realise that they were depriving him of the chance of becoming a full participant in the joint staff pension fund. in all likelihood, had they realised the consequences of their decision, they would have extended the period of the contract ... without regard to the date of expiry of the project and so enabled the complainant to become a full participant."

    Keywords:

    contract; contributory service; extension; fixed-term; forfeiture of benefit; negligence; non-renewal of contract; participation; unjspf;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "in the circumstances of the case under consideration the omission to take account of the complainant's situation in respect of membership of the pension fund constituted a fact which must be described as essential."

    Keywords:

    disregard of essential fact; organisation's duties; participation; unjspf;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "...the complainant was deprived of full participation both by his own negligence and by an omission on the part of the organization. it is therefore proper to meet the complainant's claims in part by ordering the organization to pay the complainant from the date of his retirement half the amount of the pension to which he would have been entitled as a full participant in the joint staff pension fund."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant suffers from total incapacity for work. He asks the Tribunal to recommend to the Joint Staff Pension Fund to pay him a permanent pension.

    Consideration 1

    In accordance with a decision taken by the FAO Conference, the Tribunal is competent to hear complaints from staff members of the organization alleging non-observance of their terms and conditions of employment, "with the exception of complaints concerning the benefits of the [...] Joint Staff Pension Fund.

    Considerations 2 and 3

    Extract:

    It follows from Article XII of the Statute of the Tribunal "that the possibility of submitting the question of the validity of the decision given by the Tribunal to the International Court of Justice is exclusively vested in the governing body of [the Organisation] or the administrative board of the pensions fund, as is borne out by the court itself (advisory opinion dated 23 October 1956, ICJ reports, 1956, page 77 and pages 84-85). Such a possibility is open in the sole interest of the organisation [...]. Moreover, the exercise of this right must inevitably lead the governing body to take a stand on the validity of judgments rendered by the Administrative Tribunal."

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "Although it is true that the right to recovery of payments made by mistake is generally recognised and may, in consequence, be assimilated to a statutory right, [the official] would not have been in a position to claim the reimbursement of the payments he had made, with full knowledge of the facts, into the [...] funds, by virtue of a decision which had been rendered final as far as he was concerned. Neither has the complainant any right to do so."
