  • Judgment 3640


    122nd Session, 2016
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the disciplinary measure of his summary dismissal in the wake of a sexual harassment complaint filed against him by one of his colleagues.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    The complainant submits that [...] the Ethics Adviser failed to inform him of his right to be assisted or represented by a third person for the purpose of his defence during the preliminary assessment of the complaint. However, the defendant organisation contends, without this being contradicted by the complainant in his rejoinder, that the Ethics Adviser had explicitly drawn his attention to the provisions of item 18.2 expressly mentioning this right. The Tribunal considers that, in the instant case, this manner of proceeding satisfied the duty to inform, especially as the complainant is highly qualified and was thus plainly quite capable of understanding the content of these provisions.

  • Judgment 3414


    119th Session, 2015
    International Atomic Energy Agency
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant unsuccessfully challenges the decision to remove his name from an e-mail distribution list on the ground that he had been released from his regular duties to work as President of the Staff Council.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "Communication between officials or groups of officials of an international organisation is essential for the effective functioning of the organisation. With the advent of e-mail, one practical and common means of communication within a group involves the creation of e-mail distribution lists so that information contained in an e-mail can be given routinely to all officials who have or may have a common interest in knowing that information by virtue of membership in that group. There is no reason to doubt that in the ordinary course the identity of officials who will receive such information by being on a particular distribution list, is a matter to be determined by the administration of the organisation by officials who have a leadership role within the group or by others. As a generalisation, no individual official has a right to assert that she or he is entitled to particular information simply by virtue of her or his own assessment of the position occupied by the official in the organisationís structure and the correlative need for information in the face of a decision by another official that the information will not be provided."
