Judgment No. 897
1. THE EPO SHALL PAY THE COMPLAINANT 1,000 DEUTSCHMARKS IN COSTS.
2. HER OTHER CLAIMS ARE DISMISSED.
Following a promotion, the complainant was no longer entitled to a language allowance. In its place she was awarded a compensatory payment after an eighteen month delay. She regards the language allowance as part of her salary and seeks the grant of a further step. As in Judgment 737 the Tribunal dismisses her claims but awards her costs because of the delay in payment of compensation to which she was entitled.
