  • Judgment 1613


    82nd Session, 1997
    European Free Trade Association
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant's internal appeal was late. But EFTA itself admits to mistakes in the numbering of the provisions to which the regulations refer, "and they may well have misled the complainants." The Association set up no advisory board, though Staff Regulation 40 provided for one, and the deputy Secretary-General himself told the complainants that in the absence of a recommendation from the Advisory Board they might go to the Tribunal. "All things considered, the complaints must be declared receivable."

  • Judgment 1610


    82nd Session, 1997
    World Customs Organization (Customs Co-operation Council)
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    "In a case of non-renewal the Tribunal will be especially cautious in reviewing any appraisal by a supervisor of the staff member's performance: the supervisor has the technical background and the knowledge of the staff member's work and personality that qualify him better than anyone else to advise the head of the Secretariat on that score. Some appraisals of the complainant's performance are not good." Others are more positive, though not unreservedly. "Though she does produce letters of commendation from several quarters, it is not for the Tribunal to choose between conflicting assessments: it is the executive authority that has discretion to do so."

    Keywords:

    contract; different appraisals; discretion; executive head; fixed-term; judicial review; limits; non-renewal of contract; qualifications; supervisor; work appraisal;



  • Judgment 1595


    82nd Session, 1997
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "Though the qualifications stated in a notice of vacancy are not absolutely binding and the Director General may still exercise some discretion, he may not so utterly discard them as to flout the rules that ensure the proper openness and objectivity of the competition."

    Keywords:

    appointment; competition; complaint allowed; complaint allowed in part; criteria; decision quashed; discretion; executive head; flaw; limits; vacancy notice;



  • Judgment 1576


    82nd Session, 1997
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "Since the award of end-of-service promotion falls within the Director-General's discretion, the Tribunal exercises only a limited power of review: it will intervene only if there has been breach of some rule of form or procedure or a mistake of law or fact or failure to take some essential fact into account."

    Keywords:

    discretion; disregard of essential fact; executive head; formal flaw; judicial review; limits; mistake of fact; procedural flaw; promotion; separation from service;



  • Judgment 1556


    81st Session, 1996
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "Like appointment and promotion, transfer is at the discretion of the executive head of the international organisation and subject to only limited review. The Tribunal may interfere only if the decision was taken ultra vires or shows formal or procedural flaw or mistake of fact or law, or if some material fact was overlooked, or if there was misuse of authority or an obviously wrong inference from the evidence. And the Tribunal will be especially wary in reviewing a transfer since it may not replace the employer's rating of the official with its own."

    Keywords:

    appointment; decision; discretion; executive head; judicial review; limits; promotion; transfer;



  • Judgment 1543


    81st Session, 1996
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "The Administrative Council exercised its discretion under Article 19(2) [of the EPO's Protocol on Privileges and Immunities] in declining to waive the President's immunity from jurisdiction. Such exercise of discretion is a matter outside the Tribunal's competence, affecting as it does relations between the defendant organisation and a member State. The complaint is therefore 'clearly irreceivable' and must be summarily dismissed in accordance with Article 7 of the Tribunal's Rules."

    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "Refusal to answer an appeal is not obstruction: the litigant may still appeal to the Tribunal against the implied rejection. [...] Moreover, the President of the Office pleads the need to keep down the amount of internal litigation so as not to overload the administration with pointless work and expenditure. He has thereby assessed the Organisation's interests and made an exercise of discretion with which the Tribunal may not interfere in the circumstances of this case."

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "The Director-General having waived, in accordance with Staff Rule 1240.2, the complainant's obligation to go through the internal appeal procedure, she has exhausted the remedies open to her within the Organization, as Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute required her to do."

    Consideration 14

    Extract:

    "The Tribunal's competence is determined by the provisions of its Statute. Neither the ruling by the Joint Appeals bBoard on its own competence nor the Director-General's endorsement or acquiescence can give the Tribunal jurisdiction which its Statute does not."

    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Advancement under Staff Regulation 3.4 "consists in rising by steps: any staff member qualifies for it who meets the conditions of seniority and 'satisfactory service'. Personal promotion means rising in grade without any change in duties and is a benefit that the Director General may bestow at discretion. He does so only in 'exceptional circumstances' to reward someone for services of a quality higher than that ordinarily expected of the holder of the post."

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The Tribunal has ruled in Judgment 988 "that Regulation 4.9 allows the Secretary-General to promote someone even against the Appointment and Promotion Board's advice and is intended as a safeguard to ensure compliance with the rules on appointment and promotion.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "All organisations need computer technology and there is nothing wrong with making staff who draft and write search reports and the like work with software and submit their output in a readily usable format. [...] EPO officers have wide discretion over matters of organisation and the EPO is not to be held liable for bringing conditions of work up to date. It thereby infringed none of the safeguards the staff enjoy; nor may it be deemed to have altered the job description of search examiners, which, [...] is cast in very general terms."
