THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The Director-General may assign the staff as the organisation's interests require provided he respects their grades and the grading structure."

The complainant objects to her transfer from a G.7 post she held in the document services branch to the post of assistant cashier at the same grade because the new post did not suit her qualifications. The Tribunal holds that "the transfer did not cause the complainant any drop in grade, so that her basic rights under the Staff Regulations are unimpaired. The only question possibly at issue is whether her new post comprises duties and responsibilities that warrant G.7 and, as the organisation has explained, there is no question but that it does since the duties of assistant cashier have always carried that grade."
