Judgment No. 629
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The Tribunal holds that on the evidence the supervisor did not break promises as alleged by the complainant in support of his claims: first of all, when assigning additional work to the complainant, his supervisor made no promise to him; furthermore, while he led the complainant to believe that he would suggest upgrading of his post, he appears to have done so. The claim for compensation fails.
post classification; promotion; promise
For some years the complainant has been trying, to no avail, to have his post upgraded. "Although the evidence shows the complainant to be a fine staff member who has perhaps not fared as well towards the end of his career as he might reasonably have expected, that does not mean the iILO has been in any way at fault."
