Judgment No. 1382
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The complainant was a locally recruited official in the general service category whose appointment was terminated after the paho abolished his post. He submits that the Organization ruled out the possibility of reassignment by limiting the geographical scope of a competition. The plea fails. WHO Manual paragraph II.9.290 confers no right on general service staff to reassignment on a post outside their duty station. Staff Rule 510.1 precludes reassignment of such staff outside their duty station unless there is mutual agreement and under Rule 1310.2 all posts in the general service category are subject to local recruitment.
Organization rules reference: WHO MANUAL PARAGRAPH II.9.290; PAHO STAFF RULE 510.1; PAHO STAFF RULE 1310.2
