Judgment No. 526
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The Tribunal is not competent to review the administrative reform whereby two previously independent departments were merged into one.
competence of tribunal; reorganisation
The claim inviting the Tribunal to order the Secretary-General to place the complainant in a post suited to her qualifications and experience does not fall with the scope of the Tribunal's competence.
competence of tribunal; assignment
The Tribunal considers it something of an anomaly that the complainant has had no promotion for thirteen years. Her reasonable expectations have not been fulfilled. The advice given her by the Secretary-General to submit her candidature for WMO post vacancies "implies some willingness to advance the complainant's career by giving her promotion corresponding to her seniority, qualifications and experience, provided that this is administratively and financially possible."
