  • Judgment 2480


    100th Session, 2006
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 2 and 4

    Extract:

    The complainant takes issue with an ILO circular which concerned matrimonial property rights. It informed foreign nationals, like himself, who were married outside Switzerland with no marriage contract, that Switzerland was treating such persons as subject to the Swiss regime of joint ownership of property acquired after marriage (participation aux acquêts). He holds that by accepting such "instructions" from the Swiss Government, the Organization caused him undue financial hardship and "deep moral suffering". The Tribunal considers that the circular was "simply the transmission by the ILO to its staff members resident in Geneva of information received from the local 'Chambre des notaires'. [...] The publication by an international organisation for its staff members of purely objective information of this sort relating to local private law is manifestly not a matter falling within the Tribunal's field of competence."

    76th Session, 1994
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 20 and 21

    Extract:

    The ITU alleges that as a member of project personnel the complainant could not expect his appointment to be renewed after a restructuring exercise, unlike headquarters officials whose appointments were extended. "It is clear from the Staff Regulations and the relevant rules that the provisions on fixed-term appointments are in substance the same for both [headquarters and project personnel]. [...] The Union is mistaken in relying on [a rule] to rebut the complainant's charge of discrimination in favour of other staff".

    63rd Session, 1987
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "it would be in breach of an official's rights as such and a denial of his entitlements under the procedure for personal promotion to discount any of his service, including periods he may have spent on secondment to technical assistance projects. but the complainant is in a quite different case since he was not yet an official when employed on such projects."

    Keywords:

    equal treatment; field; general principle; headquarters official; international civil servant; personal promotion; professional experience; project personnel; promotion; status of complainant;

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "such service [technical assistance] may not count for the purpose of personal promotion unless there is an express rule to that effect. there is not. [...] periods of service [on technical co-operation projects] do not count, not even when, like the complainant, [experts] are later appointed to the staff at headquarters."

  • Judgment 267


    36th Session, 1976
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    under the applicable provisions, headquarters officials must retire at the age of sixty-two "unless the director-general [decides] otherwise for exceptional reasons in the interests of the organization." in the present case, "the director-general abided by the general rule and was indeed in no way required to grant an exemption."

    Keywords:

    age limit; contract; discretion; extension; headquarters official; organisation's interest; retirement;

    Summary

    Extract:

    the age limit for headquarters officials is 62, unless otherwise decided by the director-general for exceptional reasons; for field officials there is a possibility of remaining in service until 65, but not as a matter of course [not applicable to holders of fixed-term appointments]. the complainant had been appointed project director; he was subsequently recalled to headquarters and informed that his contract would terminate. the tribunal dismisses his claim for the quashing of the decision to retire him.
