  • Judgment 944


    65th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    the complainant and her husband are employees of the epo. in view of the fact that between them they pay a double premium, she is seeking the refund at 100 per cent of their medical expenses, and not 80 per cent as stipulated in the insurance policy. in keeping with the organisation's view, the tribunal holds that under the material rules of the organisation, "each staff member pays contributions that depend on the amount of salary, yet is entitled to the same benefits, whatever the degree of individual risk or family situation may be. status as an official will always prevail over status as the member of an official's family, and the right to refund derives solely from the former, not from any marital connection there may be with another official."

    Consideration 25

    Extract:

    The complainant, who has not held a headquarters post for the past thirteen years, alleges breach of Circular 180.

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant, a national of the federal republic of germany, was initially appointed to the hague, where he received an expatriation allowance; he was then transferred to berlin where he no longer received the allowance. the complainant contends that he is still entitled to the allowance under article 72[3] of the epo service regulations since, even though a national of the country in which he is serving, he had been continuously resident in another state for at least 10 years at the time of appointment. the complainant takes the expression 'at the time of their appointment' to mean at the date of transfer. the interpretation is without merit. the complaint is dismissed.

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

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainant has been employed under fixed-term contracts since 1976. he claims to be entitled to an appointment of indeterminate duration by virtue of national legislation. the tribunal will not rule on the applicability of national legislation. it limits itself to noting that if national legislation is applicable, the tribunal has no power of review and if it is not applicable, the tribunal must examine the alleged breaches of staff regulations by the organisation; it finds no evidence of a breach.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    the organisation "does concede that there may be some actual costs to be refunded. if that were so, then under the safeguard in [the material provisions] transferred officials would undoubtedly be entitled to refund. that is an issue of fact, and one on which the tribunal cannot rule. it is up to the complainants to ask the [organisation] to ... refund their actual costs not otherwise covered. the tribunal holds that on the correct construction of the [material provisions] they would be entitled to have any such sums repaid."

    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    all staff members should hold a post and perform the duties pertaining thereto. this "principle will not in practice have the effect of impairing the legitimate authority of the head of branch. work requirements will determine how staff are to be assigned, and the result may be that a staff member has some of his duties taken away from him or is set to work that does not quite match his inclinations or even his talents. the supervisor is also entitled to propose that a staff member be moved [...] but so long as the staff member remains in a particular branch the head must see to it that he is given real work."

    Extract:

    the organization "do not deny they made changes of form and substance [to the text of the complainant's report] without his approval. but they were fully entitled by virtue of their rights under [the applicable rule] to endorse or reject his draft: they were under no duty either to seek comments from him or to act on any he made."

    Summary

    Extract:

    copyright in that portion of the technical report written by the complainant during his free time and containing data from outside his official area of knowledge is wholly vested in the organization. the provision on which the organization relies is a staff rule applicable even though not based on any provision of the staff regulations; whenever the report was drafted and whatever its content, it is part of the complainant's professional duties and its nature remains the same; the organization had discretion to alter the complainant's draft, as they were free to publish the report at all.

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    "the tribunal has only such competence as is conferred on it, and this is confined to complaints alleging non-observance of the terms of appointment or staff regulations. the staff member does not have to rely on a particular clause of his contract, the regulations or any subsidiary text. when he is seeking enforcement of a right he claims as an international civil servant and his claim rests on a breach of that right by the organisation in his status as a staff member, ... the tribunal [is empowered] to entertain it."

    amendment to the rules; contract; duration of appointment; fixed-term; no provision; permanent; right;

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    the complainant was appointed for a fixed term. "it is immaterial that he received assurances about the possibility of confirmation, that he holds a permanent post. that his predecessor had a permanent appointment and that other staff members have been granted permanent appointments after fixed-term ones. none of these facts warrants the grant of the permanent appointment. in particular there is no provision in the staff regulations and staff rules which says that the incumbent of a permanent post should perforce have a permanent appointment."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "it is to be noted that the change in the complainant's situation affected [statutory] entitlements [...] these are expatriate entitlements designed for recruits from abroad who will wish to maintain their contacts with the home country, the most important being grants for home leave and education. they are more freely available to officials in the p grades than to those in the gs."

    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.

    contract; external collaborator; participation; period; probation; right; unjspf; validation of service;

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

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "as a rule an official's comments on his subordinates do not give them any right to compensation; otherwise supervisors would express only guarded opinions about their subordinates, and that would be harmful to the organisation's efficiency. the most that can be said is that when a supervisor expresses an opinion which he knows to be untrue for a purely malicious purpose he, or the organisation, will be liable."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    if an employer has failed to exercise due skill and care in arriving at a judgment on the safety of the place of work, the employee is entitled to compensation in full against the consequences of the misjudgment. "this principle is to be applied with due regard to the nature of the employment. in some employments there are unavoidable risks. a doctor may have to risk infection and a soldier or a policeman to risk bombs. the question in each case is whether the risk is abnormal having regard to the nature of the employment."

    Keywords:

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "if there is doubt about the safety of a place of work, it is the duty of the employer to make the necessary inquiries and to arrive at a reasonable and careful judgement [...] if [the employee] accepts the order, as prima facie he is bound to do, and the employer has failed to exercise due skill and care in arriving at his judgment, the employee is, subject to any contrary provision in the contract, entitled to be indemnified in full against the consequences of the misjudgment."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "prima facie the complainant is entitled to have [the periodical appraisal report] for what he thinks it to be worth; a doubt thrown on its value is not a ground for denying it. furthermore, its usefulness to the complainant is not to be judged exclusively by reference to the main purpose of the report as set out in staff rule 530."

    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.
