    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision not to grant him sick leave after his dismissal for misconduct.

    Consideration 9


    [T]he complainant’s confidentiality was breached when, without his consent, the certificate [...], which mentioned the nature of his incapacity, was disclosed to the Appeals Committee with the FAO’s reply in the internal appeal proceedings. The information it contained was then specifically repeated in the Appeals Committee’s report to the Director-General. As a result, the Tribunal finds that the FAO breached the complainant’s right to privacy when confidential medical information concerning the nature of his incapacity was passed to third parties. This aspect of the complaint is therefore well founded and the complainant will be awarded [...] moral damages in the circumstances.
