Judgment No. 4041
The complaint is dismissed.
As a former employee, the complainant challenges the decision to ban her from entering the EPO premises without prior authorisation.
house ban; complaint dismissed
The complaint will be dismissed as the Tribunal has no competence to hear it. Article II, paragraph 5, of the Tribunal’s Statute relevantly provides that the Tribunal shall be competent “to hear complaints alleging non-observance, in substance or in form, of the terms of appointment of officials and of provisions of the Staff Regulations”. The present complaint does not fall within the ambit of this provision as it does not allege non-observance of the terms of an appointment which the complainant held with the EPO.
