Consideration 7


"International organisations have a duty of care towards their employees and must provide clear rules and regulations as well as clarifications of such when requested, but they cannot be solely responsible for every situation stemming from confusion regarding said rules. Employees are also charged with the duty to inform themselves, and to request clarification when necessary so that the system can work efficiently to the best advantage of both the Organisation and the staff members either as a group or individually (see, for example, Judgment 2997, under 6)."
