Judgment No. 2668
The complaint is dismissed.
"Personal promotion constitutes advancement on merit and is supposed to reward a staff member for services of a quality higher than those ordinarily expected of the holder of the post. In the absence of any provision to the contrary, it is an optional and exceptional discretionary measure which is subject to only limited review by the Tribunal (see Judgments 1500, under 4, and 1973, under 5)."
