  • Judgment 1439


    79th Session, 1995
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    The organization refused to promote the complainant with effect from the date at which he met the material conditions on the grounds that he had been subject to disciplinary action. The Tribunal quashed the disciplinary action in an earlier judgment and the complainant finally got his promotion, albeit with some delay. The Tribunal rejects his claim to moral damages. "The delay in granting him promotion caused him no moral injury because the organisation acted in good faith in originally deciding not to promote him."

    Keywords:

    date; delay; disciplinary measure; effective date; good faith; judgment of the tribunal; moral injury; organisation; promotion; refusal;



  • Judgment 1432


    79th Session, 1995
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "It is immaterial to the fact of recruitment that the decision to recruit her may have been taken ultra vires. [...] The organization must bear the consequences of any decision taken by someone it has itself appointed for the purpose".

  • Judgment 1431


    79th Session, 1995
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    The EPO described [the complainant's] complaint as "an abuse". But it does not ask the Tribunal to dismiss it as irreceivable for that reason. "The defendant is merely exercising the freedom of speech that any litigant must be allowed, short of resorting to offensive or insulting language." the complainant's claim to damages on that account fails.

  • Judgment 1419


    78th Session, 1995
    European Southern Observatory
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    "It is inadmissible for the Observatory in its surrejoinder - to which it knows the complainants do not have the opportunity of answering - to raise a new objection to receivability on the strength of facts it was aware of at the time of filing. The plea is the less acceptable for being at odds with the ESO's reply."

    case sent back to organisation; complaint; complaint allowed; decision quashed; new plea; organisation; receivability of the complaint; reply; surrejoinder;

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

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    If the complainant succeeded in proving flaws in the procedure adopted by the Appeals Committee "they would indeed have been fatal and the EPO would, contrary to what it says, be liable."

    effect; flaw; internal appeals body; liability; organisation; organisation's duties; procedural flaw;



  • Judgment 1392


    78th Session, 1995
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 36

    Extract:

    The complainant objects to the actuarial method which the organisation used in a study of the pension fund's foreseeable costs. "Like any public authority, the EPO enjoys a presumption in its favour - especially when it is taking technical measures and it has done thorough preparatory work - that its choice of actuarial method is the most suitable and the fairest. [...] It is of course open to a staff member under a system of administrative law to challenge the organisation's choice, but he must be able to adduce evidence to show why the chosen method, when compared with others, may suffer from technical flaws that should have disqualified it."

  • Judgment 1337


    77th Session, 1994
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "The special service agreement that the complainant signed stated that it was between him and the United Nations. The fact that it provided for services to [subsidiary bodies of the FAO] does not make either of those bodies or the FAO itself a party to the contract or liable thereunder. The conclusion is that the Tribunal is not competent to hear the case."

  • Judgment 1320

    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    The complainant is challenging the validity of the ITU's reply because it was signed not by the Secretary-General or the legal adviser but by the chief of the Personnel Department. "She is mistaken. According to Article 13(2) of the Rules of Court a defendant organisation may be represented by any serving or former official. It is so represented here: the chief of personnel may properly represent the Union."

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

    Considerations 8 and 9

    Extract:

    The World Food Program is "a joint endeavour of the United Nations and the FAO. Although in some circumstances an agreement signed by the WFP might have bound the organization, in this case every special service agreement that the complainant signed stated that it was between him and the United Nations. [...] The conclusion is that the Tribunal is not competent to hear the case."

  • Judgment 1250


    74th Session, 1993
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 22 and 23

    Extract:

    The complainant was dismissed for misconduct after refusing transfer to a post outside headquarters. He alleges that summary dismissal was at odds with the principle of proportionality. The Tribunal holds that "dismissal was not a sudden decision. Furthermore, even after the proposal for dismissal he was given two opportunities to change his mind. [...] The decision to dismiss was a proper exercise of the discretion of the organization and did not infringe the principle of proportionality."

  • Judgment 1249


    74th Session, 1993
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "The impugned decision [not to renew the complainant's appointment] was warranted neither by the WHO's concern for the purported interests of the country of the complainant's nationality nor by its desire to keep on good terms and work effectively with its membership. Relations with a member state may be good without the Organization's allowing any of its Member States the right to interfere in the area of personnel management."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    WHO put an end to the complainant's appointment on the grounds that the authorities of his country were unwilling to release him any longer. "The Director-General took himself to be bound by the attitude of the government of the Soviet Union. In doing so, he mistook the limits of his own discretion. As was held in Judgment 15 [...] among others, he must in exercising that discretion observe the general principles that govern the international civil service and safeguard the independence of organisation and official alike. The Director-General has committed a mistake of law."

  • Judgment 1242


    74th Session, 1993
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 4 and 5

    Extract:

    The complainant submits that the organization did not do its utmost to reinstate him in execution of Judgment 1154. WIPO's letter "does not substantiate the contention that it had. it simply conveys the Director General's decision 'not to extend [the complainant]'s appointment'. It says nothing of any attempts to find him a suitable position and thereby discharge its primary obligation under Judgment 1154. [...] The Director General had the duty to justify his decision by explaining why it was impossible to reinstate the complainant [...] only in its reply to this complaint does the organization maintain that 'there was no possibility of reinstating the complainant since there was no suitable post to which he could be appointed given his qualifications'."

  • Judgment 1239

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

    Considerations 7 and 8

    Extract:

    "The Organization belongs to the common system of the United Nations, in particular for the purposes of staff pay. That being so, it comes under the authority of the General Assembly and the International Civil Service Commission. The conclusion is that the special arrangements the Organization made under former Regulation 3.1 bis could not be kept in the long run in defiance of the rules of the common system."

  • Judgment 1238


    74th Session, 1993
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    The Tribunal ordered the complainant's reinstatement in Judgment 999. But the Director-General decided that reinstatement was not in the interest of the organization and awarded him compensation. "To condemn someone to unemployment on account of a single negligent act unaccompanied by improper intention, and in circumstances that do not justify loss of confidence by the employer, is to demand a humanly impossible standard of performance by the employee and makes the right to reinstatement illusory."

    ILOAT Judgment(s): 999

    Keywords:

    complainant; complaint allowed; complaint allowed in part; decision quashed; discretion; good faith; limits; negligence; organisation; organisation's interest; proportionality; refusal; reinstatement; right; termination;

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "Even if the Director-General has discretion to refuse reinstatement 'in the interest of the organization' he must exercise it fairly and reasonably after considering all the material facts. Here the facts were that the complainant had throughout had irreproachable appraisal reports. [...] Despite surveillance, without his knowledge, for six months prior to [the incident that led to his dismissal] no wrongdoing, negligence or irregularity on his part was discovered. [...] The Director-General has failed to take into consideration the above material facts and has erred in treating the complainant as guilty of a 'cover-up'. The refusal of reinstatement was thus not a proper exercise of whatever discretion he had in the matter."

  • Judgment 1232


    74th Session, 1993
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Having been held in his home country against his wishes, the complainant applied, under duress, for early retirement, and the authorities of his country forwarded his application to the organization. "As soon as he was able to show that he had acted under duress UNESCO had the duty, according to the general principles that guarantee the independence of international civil servants, to grant relief. Such independence means that a staff member may not be put on early retirement where a member State has ordered him to apply for it."

    burden of proof; complaint allowed; decision quashed; early retirement; independence; international civil servant; international civil service principles; lack of consent; member state; organisation; organisation's duties; request by a party;
