  • Judgment 1798


    86th Session, 1999
    European Molecular Biology Laboratory
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    "A strong line of precedent has it that payslips are individual decisions which may be challenged before the Tribunal. [...] Even though the council has reserved its right to alter pay for July 1996 later, and retroactively, the impugned decisions do show a cause of action."

    84th Session, 1998
    International Fund for Agricultural Development
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "Interpretation depends both on the context and on the nature of the text. [...] Judgment 1614 used the word [pay] to determine the amount of damages and ordered the fund to pay [the complainant] what she would have earned for six months' service. So 'pay' means the amount she would have actually received had she been under contract for those six months, and it must include salary and any allowances payable to her of whatever kind - post adjustment, family allowance, and so forth. It does not, however, include the compulsory health insurance and other contributions that were routinely docked from her emoluments."

    United Nations Industrial Development Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 17

    Extract:

    "As for the special panel set up to deal with allegations of discrimination, neither the Joint Appeals Board nor UNIDO cites any provision of the Staff Rules which compels recourse to that panel. The complainant's failure to put her grievance to it does not make her complaint irreceivable. Where a matter is otherwise within its jurisdiction the Tribunal can and will entertain related allegations of discrimination."

    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "Neither of the parties informed the Tribunal of the FAO's decision of 19 June 1995 to recognise the complainant's illness as service-incurred." Having been accordingly unaware of that fact when it delivered Judgment 1486 on 1 February 1996, the Tribunal "regards that failure as a breach of the courtesy which the parties owed it."

    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "The complainant asks the Tribunal 'to declare itself not neutral to give a judgment in this complaint because of the Tribunal's involvement (and especially of its members) in the Judgements 1041, 1296, 1297 and 1333.' The claim is not acceptable. The Tribunal will entertain each case that comes before it [...]. Besides, by lodging this complaint the complainant has acknowledged the Tribunal's competence to hear it. If he does not want the Tribunal to rule on his case, his remedy is to withdraw suit. He has not done so."

    83rd Session, 1997
    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Under dispute is a decision by the Secretary-General to hold new elections for staff representatives on the ITU's Staff Pension Committee. Although "the executive head took the impugned decision not on behalf of the pension fund but in the exercise of the authority he has, or believes he has, to act for the organisation" the Tribunal lacks jurisdiction because the case is about the Secretary-General's failure to observe Article 6 of the Regulations of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    Though the Tribunal has competence under Article II (3) of its Statute to hear "any complaint of non-observance of the staff pensions regulations or of rules made in virtue thereof", that provision "alludes to the Staff Pension Scheme of the League of Nations".

    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "That he set out his pleas in a brief entered several months [after filing his complaint] after due extension of the time limit granted for the purpose, has no bearing on receivability. As was held in Judgment 1305 [...] under 16 - to which the Tribunal draws the organization's attention - the Registrar may as such take any action he sees fit to safeguard due process."

    79th Session, 1995
    Universal Postal Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    "The [amendment in question] strikes out of the terms of employment ipso facto the safeguard of international judicial review and vests jurisdiction in municipal courts instead. The amendment brings about an immediate and almost irreversible change in the system of appeal. So [...] every staff member has an actual and present interest in having light shed on the matter. The Tribunal affords guarantees of a system of international law within the bounds of its competence: see Judgments 1265, under 24, and 1328, under 13. It would therefore be wrong to deny the staff the right of appeal on the grounds that the impugned decision is general in purport."

    Consideration 27

    Extract:

    "In this case there are close enough connections with both municipal and international law to warrant recognition of both jurisdictions, each for different issues. A staff member may therefore go to whatever tribunal he deems competent, and any tribunal with which suit is filed will determine whether the material issues of the particular case make it the most suitable jurisdiction. Such is the universally acknowledged doctrine of the forum conveniens".

  • Judgment 1450

    European Patent Organisation

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    "The Tribunal has never ruled out municipal law a priori. Although it is ordinarily and essentially competent in a context of international law, it may well have to heed some provisions of municipal law where, as indeed in this case, there is renvoi to such law in a contract of service or in an organisation's rules. Precedent further has it that there may be reference to municipal law for the sake of comparison and so as to educe certain general principles of law that apply to the international civil service."

  • Judgment 1392


    78th Session, 1995
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 24

    Extract:

    "The appeal procedure set forth in the Service Regulations is, to quote Article 106, an individual appeals system. Such too is the basic feature of the system of appeal embodied in Article II of the Statute of the Tribunal, though it is subject to the provision in Article VII(2) setting a special time limit for appeal against any decision affecting a 'class of officials', which runs from the date of issue. So it is only by virtue of an individual contract of employment with the organisation that someone may lodge a complaint and the complainant may not alter the nature of the suit by declaring when he files the complaint that he is doing so as a staff union representative."

  • Judgment 1391


    78th Session, 1995
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "Decisions taken by the organisation are subject to review on grounds such as bias, bad faith, malice and abuse of authority. When seeking to defend his interests by impugning any such decision, an employee is entitled to allege and attempt to establish such grounds. A fair decision cannot be reached upon such matters by an internal appeals body or by this Tribunal if witnesses, parties and their representatives are unable to speak candidly and without the risk of incurring a penalty for what they may say, and especially if one party is unduly inhibited by the fear that failure to prove his case my make him liable to disciplinary action by the other party."

    abuse of power; bias; burden of proof; complainant; complaint; disciplinary measure; evidence; freedom of speech; internal appeal; internal appeals body; judicial review; misuse of authority; submissions; testimony; tribunal;

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    The complainant was subject to disciplinary action for having made statements, some of them before the Tribunal, which allegedly impaired the organisation's and the Tribunal's reputations. The Disciplinary Committee asked whether the punishment of offensive remarks "for which there is no clear justification supported by evidence" would infringe the complainant's rights. The Tribunal holds that "such a test laid an undue burden on the complainant in that if he was to avoid the risk of disciplinary action he must prove the truth of his allegations. No such burden should have been put on him. The mere failure to prove the truth of his allegations did not mean that he had either abused his freedom of speech or forfeited the immunity or privilege of judicial proceedings."

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    As the International Court of Justice has held, "that rulings by international administrative tribunals are binding in particular where they make awards against organisations is the corollary of their judicial authority." (Advisory opinions of 13 July 1954 and 23 October 1956.) "In Judgment 553 [...] the Tribunal explained the nature of the obligation that its rulings lay on an organisation".

    Consideration 16

    Extract:

    "The Registrar's manifold responsibilities, which go far beyond the ambit of Article 7(4) [*] of the Rules of Court, include the general task of maintaining relations between the Tribunal and the parties and the just as important task of ensuring proper compilation of records on cases lodged with the Tribunal. In performing those tasks the Registrar is empowered ex officio to take any action he deems fit to safeguard due process."

    In the light of article 7(4) [*] of the Rules on the procedure for correcting a complaint, the Tribunal holds that "since those who fall within the Tribunal's jurisdiction live far and wide and are free to plead their own case, it is the Registrar's particular duty to see that complaints filed with the Tribunal are correctly presented and to offer a complainant such comment or advice as he thinks proper for the correction of the papers."

    The complainant "applies to the Tribunal for appointment of an expert to inquire into the scientific issues. His application is disallowed because the evidence he submits casts no doubt on the soundness of the medical opinion the organisation is relying on. For the same reason the Tribunal rejects his application for hearings."
