Judgment No. 1108

Decision

THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.

Summary

Extract:

After retiring from the Organization the complainant returned under a contract as a consultant. The letter of acceptance he signed indicated that he was being recruited locally. He argues that as a Swedish citizen whom the WHO contacted in Stockholm he was entitled to non-local status and the payment of a daily subsistence allowance. The Organization submits, rightly, that in putting his signature to the contract he accepted the terms of the offer.

Considerations 5-6

Extract:

"Although [WHO] Manual provision II.12.320 [...] says that consultants shall be paid the subsistence allowance applicable to the country of the duty station, Staff Rule 1330 empowers the Director-General to 'appoint consultants without regard to the provisions of the other sections of the Rules'. So the Director-General's offer of an appointment as a consultant without the per diem allowance was quite lawful anyway."
