The complainant essentially asks the Tribunal to issue what amounts to a declaratory order on future uncertain contingencies. The Tribunal does not make such orders.


declaration of law

Consideration 9


The Tribunal recalls that the principle of good faith and the concomitant duty of care demand that international organisations treat their staff with due consideration in order to avoid causing them undue injury; an employer must consequently inform employees in advance of any action that may imperil their rights or harm their rightful interests. The case law further states that the duty of care is greater in a rather opaque or particularly complex legal situation, as is often the case when it is necessary to determine staff rights in technical fields, such as the determination of pension rights (see, for example, Judgments 3861, under 9, and 2768, under 4).
