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

    Considerations

    Extract:

    Before the complaint was filed the Organisation went back on its decision to dismiss him and replaced it by a reprimand. Since the decision "has been withdrawn and has had no effect on his career there is no cause of action and his complaint is irreceivable."

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "When impugning an individual decision that touches him directly the employee of an international organisation may challenge the lawfulness of any general or prior decision, even by someone outside the organisation, that affords the basis for the individual one (cf. Judgments 382 [...], 622 [...] and 825 [...]). The present complainants may accordingly challenge the lawfulness of the general methodology and of the 1987 survey of Vienna, which, taken together, constitute the basis in law of the decisions under challenge."

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "As the Tribunal held in Judgment 647, provided a communication takes the form of a decision, its lawfulness is immaterial for the purpose of lodging an appeal." In the circumstances of the case the complainant's internal appeal against a decision requiring him to take home leave before a specified date was time-barred. The complaint is irreceivable.

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "According to Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute a complaint shall not be receivable unless the impugned decision is final, the complainant having exhausted the means of redress available to him under the staff regulations. That constitutes a requirement to follow any internal procedure laid down in the Staff Regulations: the staff member must not only respect the time limits for appeal but also comply with any stipulations as to procedure in the Regulations or Implementing Rules."

    Summary

    Extract:

    According to paragraphs 7 and 9 of the Statutes of the UNESCO Appeals Board, appeals must be presented by the official concerned or, on his behalf, by any other member of the Secretariat stationed at headquarters. The complainant was represented by a lawyer before the Appeals Board and thereby failed to comply with the prescribed procedure. His complaint is accordingly irreceivable. The Tribunal remarks that as lawyers ordinarily have access to any judicial body the rules governing the internal appeals procedure would not be admissible before a court of law. But under the circumstances of the instant case the rules in the Board's Statutes must be construed strictly.

    Summary

    The complainant has never appealed against the decision to terminate him. Because he failed to exhaust the internal means of redress as required by Article VII(1) of the Statute, his complaint is irreceivable.

  • Judgment 990

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

    Summary

    Extract:

    The General Assembly of the United Nations brought in a new, lower scale of pensionable remuneration as from 1 January 1985. That scale, provided for in Article 3.1.1 of the ILO Staff Regulations, did not come into force for officials serving in the organization until 1 April 1985. The complainant's pension was nonetheless reckoned according to the new scale between 1 January and 31 March 1985. She challenges the Director-General's implied rejection of her internal complaint seeking to have her pension reckoned according to the old scale up to 31 March 1985 or, failing that, compensation. The Organization submits that the measure had come to her attention through various channels and that the complaint was out of time. The Tribunal holds that the Staff Regulations contained an explicit provision which set out the staff's rights. The staff were not told of any valid ilo decision not to abide by the Staff Regulations. The Organization's contention that the complaint is irreceivable is mistaken.

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    "None of the interveners is barred by any lapse of time from claiming entitlement to the non-resident's allowance and to the other benefits. [...] Acquiescence is not a valid plea open to the organization and a woman staff member may at any time object to discriminatory treatment."

    Keywords:

    allowance; continuing breach; equal treatment; intervention; non-resident allowance; receivability of the complaint; sex discrimination; time bar;

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    "Since the rule was unlawful it could never become lawful by lapse of time or by acquiescence and a claim could therefore never be barred. Even though a claim to actual payment of the non-resident's allowance cannot succeed in these proceedings because of the complainant's failure to follow the proper internal procedure, the question of her entitlement to the allowance must be considered because of its bearing on the matter of the recurrent benefits."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "Having made his 13.1 request for review on 7 October 1987, the complainant submitted a 'complaint' under 13.2 on 8 April 1988. The lodging of the 13.1 request and the substance of it show that the complainant had become aware of the 'treatment complained of' over six months before he lodged his 'complaint', and it was therefore out of time under 13.2."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "The complainant [...] contends that each alleged short-payment of salary constitutes in itself a separate breach by the Union of its obligations towards him. But since he has not sought review by the Secretary-General of any of the alleged short-payments, his complaint is again irreceivable".

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainants received notification in their pay slips of a 0.7 per cent reduction in the refundable amount of education expenses which they had incurred. The organisation contends that the pay slips merely confirmed earlier decisions, viz. a general decision of 7 July 1987. The Tribunal holds that the impugned decisions were individual ones that cause the complainants injury, and not confirmations of earlier decisions.

    Consideration 4, Summary

    Extract:

    The Permanent Commission of Eurocontrol took a decision of policy to bring about a differential of up to 5 per cent between staff pensions in the European Communities and pensions in Eurocontrol. The complainants are challenging a general decision, not individual decisions. Not one of the complainants has retired. "Since the amount of the complainants' pension contributions is not under challenge, all that is material in this case is the amount each complainant will get when he retires. The Tribunal will not make a general ruling, being competent only to entertain individual and actual disputes, and it therefore declares the complaints irreceivable."

    new claim; new plea; receivability of the complaint; rejoinder;

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    The organisation argues that the complainant's internal appeal against the application of the amended scale of pensionable remuneration was time-barred. The plea fails. The Tribunal holds that "although [the complainant] must have known for over two years that amending the scale would have consequences when she left she could not know what the financial consequences would be."

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

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    The complainant's "argument that he was late in discovering that the decision had been unlawful is irrelevant: a time limit is a matter of objective fact and starts when the decision is notified. if that were not so - whatever considerations of equity there might be - there could be no certainty in legal relations between the parties, and such certainty is the whole point and purpose of time limits. An exception might be allowed only if the organisation had acted in bad faith and misled the official."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "Article VII[1] of the Tribunal's Statute provides that a complaint will not be receivable unless the official has exhausted the internal means of redress. to satisfy that requirement it is not enough for the official to submit an internal appeal: he must submit it in time."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    The complainant retired in December 1985. He is seeking inter alia recognition of his actual duties from the date of appointment in August 1970, reinstatement at grade P.2 as from 31 August 1970, and revision of his retirement pension. "The complaint is clearly irreceivable both because the complainant is not impugning any decision and because any time limit for appealing against the injury he alleges expired many years ago."

    The internal appeal was signed by Mr. [E.] whereas the complaint is signed by Mr. [E.]'s wife. "There being no need for a ruling of general purport on the issue, the Tribunal holds that in the circumstances of the case the complaint may be deemed receivable. [...] The complainant's husband, [...] like her, is an official of the EPO; they concur on the material issue and the purpose of the suit relates to a matter of social security for spouses".

    Considerations 5-6

    Extract:

    The organisation maintains that the complaint was time-barred as it was not filed within ninety days of the implied decision to reject it arising out of the administration's silence. The Tribunal holds that "the organisation may not plead its own failure to act. The complainant had good reason to infer [and had done his utmost to ensure] that his claim was still under review."
