Judgment No. 3675
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant contests IOMís decision to abolish his post and not to renew his fixed-term appointment.
abolition of post; non-renewal of contract; complaint dismissed
The complainant was notified of the decision to reject his Action Prior to the Lodging of an Appeal as time-barred by an e-mail dated 19 September 2013, which is not only shown to have been opened that same day but was also expressly acknowledged as read by the complainant in his e-mail of 23 September 2013. Therefore, in line with the Tribunalís case law, the date of notification of the decision to reject his Action Prior to the Lodging of an Appeal as time-barred was 19 September 2013, when he received the decision by e-mail, and not 4 October 2013, when he claims to have received the hard copy of the 19 September decision (see Judgments 2966, consideration 8, and 3351, considerations 13 to 16).
