"Although the complainant has at all stages requested the reclassification of her post to grade P.2, the Tribunal can do no more than order a desk audit on the terms decided by the Director-General. In this respect, consistent precedent has it that classification exercises are to be conducted by the appropriate body and not by the Tribunal (see Judgments 2151, under 9, and 2807, under 5)."

"The case law allows that, where it appears that a final decision will not be made within a reasonable time, a staff member may file a complaint with the Tribunal (see Judgments 1968, under 5, and 2170, under 9 and 16). By the time the complainant filed her complaint, four months had elapsed since she had been informed that the Headquarters Board of Appeal had finalised its report. At that stage, it did not appear that a decision would be taken within a reasonable time, and, indeed, it was not."
