    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to transfer him from a manager position to a non-managerial post.

    Consideration 13

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision not to reimburse in full the costs he incurred in the internal appeal proceedings.

    Consideration 12

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    Rule 9 of the Board of Appeal’s Rules of Procedure provides that “[t]he [a]ppellant may [...] be represented by outside legal counsel, which shall be at the [a]ppellant’s own expense”. This provision is clear and allows no room for reimbursement of legal fees.

  • Judgment 4341


    131st Session, 2021
    International Fund for Agricultural Development
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision not to shortlist him for the position of General Counsel.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant sought his costs for his internal appeal but the circumstances are not exceptional and the request should be refused (see Judgments 4157, consideration 14, and 4217, consideration 12).

  • Judgment 4257


    129th Session, 2020
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges his staff report for 2014.

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    The substance of the relief sought concerning the 2014 staff report is that it be set aside and removed from the complainant’s personal file. That has already happened, but well after the complaint was filed, by administrative action. No orders to this effect need be made. However the complainant has succeeded in the sense that some of his arguments have been accepted. Accordingly he is entitled to his costs. In the unusual circumstances of this case, the complaint should be dismissed but an order for costs made in favour of the complainant.

  • Judgment 4256


    129th Session, 2020
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainants challenge decisions taken by the President of the Office following a recommendation of the Internal Appeals Committee.

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    [T]he complainants may have incurred costs in filing complaints against a decision which was presented to them as a final decision that could be impugned before the Tribunal. As the withdrawal of the impugned decisions was not caused by the complainants but by the way in which the EPO interpreted its rules, the complainants may be entitled to costs (see Judgment 2853, considerations 6 to 8). Such costs should be considered in the resumed internal appeal proceedings.

  • Judgment 4229


    129th Session, 2020
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant, a former staff member of the World Food Programme, challenges the decision to maintain the decision not to renew his contract, and to award him material and moral damages instead of reinstatement.

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant seeks 5,000 euros in costs. The FAO opposes this request on the ground that as the complainant is represented by the Legal Officer of the Association of Professional Staff whose function is funded by the FAO, an award of costs would amount to double payment of legal fees. As the complainant has not disputed this, the Tribunal will award no costs.

  • Judgment 4222


    129th Session, 2020
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the refusal of UNESCO to award full compensation for the injury suffered as a result of an accident recognized as being service-incurred.

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    The complainant’s counsel requests the Tribunal to deduct certain amounts for his benefit from the monetary awards made to the complainant. However, it is not for the Tribunal to concern itself with private arrangements made between complainants and their counsel (see Judgment 4072, consideration 21). This request must therefore be rejected.

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainants challenge the rejection of their requests for an agreed separation.

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    [T]he requests for costs for the internal appeals are unfounded. There is no provision which allows for an award of legal costs for the internal appeal proceedings and there are no exceptional circumstances in these cases which could justify such an award.

    129th Session, 2020
    International Fund for Agricultural Development
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision not to provide her with the record of the investigation that ensued after she filed a harassment complaint against her supervisor, and the fact that she received no compensation for the moral harassment that she claims to have suffered.

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    [T]he Tribunal considers that there are no grounds for awarding costs in respect of the internal appeal proceedings. Such costs may only be awarded under exceptional circumstances, which do not exist in the present case.

    128th Session, 2019
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant filed an application for review of Judgment 3932.

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    As to the award of costs, the complainant’s disagreement with the amount of the award is not a ground on which a judgment is subject to review.

  • Judgment 4162


    128th Session, 2019
    United Nations Industrial Development Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the final decision on her claim for compensation for a service-incurred injury or illness.

    Consideration 23

    Extract:

    It is [...] observed that the obvious and ordinary meaning of “sustained” in the context of a decision is to uphold or affirm the earlier decision. The ordinary meaning of “sustained” does not include a decision that alters the prior decision. However, the same provision provides that if “the Director-General alters his original decision in favour of the claimant” the Organization bears the identified costs. The language of the provision is clear and unambiguous. If the drafter of the provision had intended that the claimant would bear the identified costs in the event that the original decision was altered to her or his detriment it would have been explicitly stated.

  • Judgment 4160


    128th Session, 2019
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant seeks a redefinition of his employment relationship.

    Consideration 16

    Extract:

    Without excluding on principle the possibility of issuing an order of this type against interveners in proceedings, the Tribunal will not accept WIPO’s claim in this case. While the filing of these applications to intervene, which were bound to be dismissed, just before the case was included on the list for the session is surprising, this unfortunate procedural initiative cannot nevertheless be regarded as constituting a clear abuse of procedure.

    World Intellectual Property Organization

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant seeks a redefinition of his employment relationship and the setting aside of the decision not to renew his last contract of employment.

    Consideration 17

    Extract:

    Without excluding on principle the possibility of issuing an order of this type against interveners in proceedings, the Tribunal will not accept WIPO’s claim in this case. While the filing of these applications to intervene, which were bound to be dismissed, just before the case was included on the list for the session is surprising, this unfortunate procedural initiative cannot nevertheless be regarded as constituting a clear abuse of procedure.

    128th Session, 2019
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant submits that WIPO has not fully compensated her for the injury that she suffered as a result of being subjected to harassment.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    The Tribunal notes that there is no rule which obliges the Organization to defray legal costs incurred in the context of internal appeal proceedings (see Judgments 2996, consideration 23, and 221, consideration 7).

    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the amount of compensation awarded for the moral injury she suffered because her evaluation for 2013 was irregular and contests the partial modification thereof.

    Consideration 13

    Extract:

    As regards costs relating to the internal appeal, [...] the Tribunal notes that there is no rule which obliges the Organization to defray legal costs incurred in the context of internal appeal proceedings. In these circumstances, it was open to the Director General to refuse to reimburse them (see Judgments 2996, consideration 23, and 221, consideration 7).

    Summary: The complainants challenge the decision to allow all staff to vote when members of the Staff Council are elected.

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    The complainants seek an order for their “actual costs”. This is not an order made by the Tribunal, at least ordinarily.

  • Judgment 4003


    126th Session, 2018
    International Criminal Court
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant seeks compensation for damages related to her arrest and detention in Libya while on an official mission.

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    Since the complainant succeeds, she is entitled to an award of costs, as is Mr P. L., whose application to intervene is allowed. The Tribunal sets the award of costs for Mr P. L. at 500 euros as he was not represented by a lawyer and did not need to provide extensive submissions in his application to intervene. The complainant, considering the complexity of the case, is awarded costs in the amount of 20,000 euros.

  • Judgment 3945


    125th Session, 2018
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges her 2013 performance evaluation.

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    [T]he Tribunal’s case law states that a complainant may make a claim for consequential relief which was not made in the internal proceedings. Under that case law, claims for moral damages can be treated as consequential relief and thus are not subject to the requirement to exhaust internal remedies (see Judgment 3871, consideration 18). Regarding the claim for costs, the Tribunal has accepted that only a claim for costs with respect to the proceedings before the Tribunal may be receivable (see Judgment 3421, under 2(a)).
