Judgment No. 548
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The time limit for submitting an internal appeal had long since expired when the complainant appealed to the Appeals Board. "The acceptance of his resignation had by then become final and was no longer open to challenge. His involvement in a serious accident [...] did not have the effect of suspending the time limit. The Director therefore correctly applied the rules in dismissing the appeal which the complainant addressed to him against the decision [to reject the internal appeal as being time-barred and therefore irreceivable]."
