Judgment No. 3690
The complaints are dismissed, as is the EPO’s counterclaim for costs.
The complainants contest the deduction of maternity leave periods from the time taken into account for the payment of a collective reward to staff in active service during 2011.
joinder; allowance; maternity leave; complaint dismissed
The EPO seeks an order that the complainants pay some of their costs. This is inappropriate particularly given the fact that Judgment 3517 was not available to the complainants when they filed their complaints.
