    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the EPOís refusal to send his mail to an address, which is not the declared residence address in his last retirement questionnaire.

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "The unjustified delay of over three years between the filing of the appeal and the submission of the EPOís position constitutes in itself an egregious delay which merits an award of damages. Taking into consideration both the excessive length of the delay and the fact that it is not apparent that this delay had a significant adverse impact on the complainant, the Tribunal sees fit to award moral damages in the amount of 800 euros (see Judgment 3160, under 17)."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the EPOís alleged failure to take an express decision on his claim for the reimbursement of the travel expenses that he incurred in respect of his children upon leaving the service of the EPO.

    Considerations 6-7

    Extract:

    "With respect to the claim for moral damages for delay, this claim is not irreceivable because it was not raised in the internal appeal, as the EPO argues. It is in fact a claim by which the complainant seeks a remedy for inordinate or unreasonable delay in the internal appeal process itself, for which the Tribunal has in many instances awarded moral damages. [...]

    World Intellectual Property Organization

    Summary: The complainant impugns the Director General's decision to partially adopt the Appeal Board's recommendations on his appeal against his temporary suspension.

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    "As the Tribunal finds the suspension decision was lawful, any humiliation stemming from the suspension is not, in this case, compensable by way of an award of moral damages, given that the humiliation he suffered was a necessary and direct consequence of the suspension itself."

    "[T]he Tribunal held in Judgment 3080, under 25, that the provision of Article VII, paragraph 1, of the Tribunalís Statute, which requires all internal means of redress to be exhausted, does not apply to a claim for compensation for moral injury. The Tribunal restates that moral damages constitute a claim for consequential relief which the Tribunal has the power to grant in all circumstances."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to dismiss his harassment complaint for lack of evidence.

    Consideration 16

    Extract:

    "It is not controverted that some of [the complainant's]complaints went unanswered. This shows that there was a degree of indifference regarding his express concerns. This was not only another aspect of harassment but also a breach of the ICCís duty of care towards the complainant which, in addition to the breach of due process, entitles him to moral damages [...]."

  • Judgment 3449

    Summary: The Tribunal cancelled the disputed competitions because the ILO rendered the recruitments unlawful.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "The complainant seeks redress for the injury he has suffered without, however, explaining the nature of that injury. Since [...] his personal interests are not at stake in these cases, this claim will be dismissed."

  • Judgment 3439


    119th Session, 2015
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant successfully challenges the decision to terminate his appointment after the abolition of his post, as the Tribunal found that, due to the Organisation's failings, he had lost a valuable opportunity to be reassigned to another post.

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    "[T]he complainant is entitled to moral damages for the failings in the reassignment process. Reinstatement is impracticable and inappropriate. The complainant lost the full benefit of the opportunity created by the Rules to be reassigned to another post within WHO. That is a valuable opportunity. That said, there can be no certainty or even likelihood that he would have been reassigned."

  • Judgment 3422


    119th Session, 2015
    Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The Tribunal found that the Global Fund breached its duty of care towards the complainant and that his separation entitlements were not sufficient.

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    It is not in dispute that the Global Fund erred in announcing that Mr B. would temporarily occupy the newly created position of Unit Director, Africa and the Middle East [to which the complainant had applied] at a public meeting before informing the complainant personally. While the complainant received an apology both orally and in writing, it cannot be doubted that this breach of the duty of care had a negative effect on the complainant for which he is entitled to moral damages.

    duty of care; moral injury;

    119th Session, 2015
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The Tribunal found that the complainant was entitled to moral damages for identified errors of the Administration.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    To the extent that the complainant seeks compensation in excess of the 50,000 Swiss francs requested in the internal appeal, it will not be considered in the absence of any justification for the increase.

    Keywords:

    formal demand for payment; moral injury;



  • Judgment 3418


    119th Session, 2015
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The Tribunal recognized the moral injury caused to the complainant and determined the amount of compensation.

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    "The complainant, through her counsel, has called in aid not only these findings and recommendations but also the recommendations of the Appeal Board in a separate report [...] a basis for the calculation of damages in these proceedings. This is impermissible. The complainant has elected, presumably advised to do so by her legal adviser, to commence and prosecute several internal appeals. Whether this was desirable or necessary, is not a matter on which the Tribunal should comment. However, in assessing damages, the Tribunal should, in a case such as the present, focus on the subject matter of the complaint informed by the scope of the internal appeal."

    Keywords:

    moral injury;



  • Judgment 3417


    119th Session, 2015
    International Organization for Migration
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The Tribunal found that IOM's failure to ensure compliance with its performance evaluation procedures warranted an award of moral damages to the complainant.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "[T]he complainant is entitled to moral damages for [...] the IOMís failure to ensure compliance with its performance evaluation procedures."

    Keywords:

    moral injury;



  • Judgment 3413


    119th Session, 2015
    International Atomic Energy Agency
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant successfully impugns the decision to dismiss her appeal against the rejection of her sexual harassment complaint.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    Sexual harassment of a staff member in the workplace is a serious violation of her or his rights and is all the more egregious if the harassment is by a senior staff member. An apparently bona fide complaint of sexual harassment has to be investigated promptly and thoroughly. Equally it has to be reinvestigated if circumstances warrant further investigation. In the present case, the IAEAís failure to reinvestigate involves a serious breach of its duty towards the complainant. Even if the sexual harassment had not occurred, the pursuit of the allegation would doubtless have been traumatic for the complainant. The trauma would have been compounded by the failure to reopen the investigation as she requested. Of course if the sexual harassment had occurred then almost certainly the trauma caused by the failure to reopen the investigation is likely to have been significant. In the Tribunalís view, the complainant is entitled to moral damages of substance. They are assessed in the sum of 20,000 euros.
