Judgment No. 446
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
By a majority opinion of 3 to 5, the internal appeals body recommended not reclassifying the complainant's post. The Director-General accepted that view. "The question is one for a general appreciation by persons who are familiar with the working conditions". Unless there is clear evidence of a mistaken approach to the problem, the view of the majority (and of the Director-General) must be accepted.
internal appeals body; recommendation; post classification; discretion
The absence of a reclassification plan, as provided for in the Staff Regulations, was not regarded by the internal appeals body as a lacuna nor did it prevent the Director-General from taking a decision on a request for a post reclassification. "If therefore there was a violation of the Regulations cited, it does not vitiate the decision impugned."
