Judgment No. 549
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The principles on which the Tribunal exercises a limited power of review of decisions of the Director General not to renew a fixed-term contract are now established in the Tribunal's jurisprudence and are not in any material point in this case in dispute. It is therefore unnecessary to restate them in general terms."

"The ending of the work on which an officer is engaged is not in all circumstances a conclusive justification of non-renewal; the possibility of using his services in other ways is also a factor to be considered. In the present case, however, the organization rightly contends that the complainant's qualifications as an analyst programmer were so specialised as to make it useless to consider posts in other departments."
