Judgment keywords


post classification; complaint dismissed

Consideration 3


"[I]t should be noted that in the area of post classification the Tribunal leaves a considerable degree of discretion to organisations. It cannot simply substitute its own assessment for theirs. Decisions taken in this area are subject to only limited review, and can be set aside only if they were taken without authority, show some formal or procedural flaw or a mistake of fact or of law, overlook some material fact, draw clearly mistaken conclusions from the facts or involve an abuse of authority (see, for example, Judgment 3273, under 6, and Judgment 2581, under 2)."
