    Consideration 8

  • Judgment 3672


    122nd Session, 2016
    Universal Postal Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision not to confirm his appointment at the end of his extended trial period.

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The UPU has made a counterclaim for costs. Without ruling out, as a matter of principle, the possibility of making such an order against a complainant (see, for example, Judgments 1884, 1962, 2211 and 3043), the Tribunal will avail itself of that possibility only in exceptional situations. Indeed, it is essential that the Tribunal should be open and accessible to international civil servants without the dissuasive and chilling effect of possible adverse awards of that kind. In the present case, the complaint cannot be regarded as manifestly vexatious, even though it was irreceivable because internal remedies had not been exhausted (see Judgment 3506, under 4).

    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to retroactively implement the transitional measure accompanying the replacement of the former invalidity pension with an invalidity allowance.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "The EPO seeks a costs order against the complainant on the basis that she continued to pursue her complaint after Judgment 3291 was drawn to her attention in correspondence from the EPO’s lawyers in May 2014. The Tribunal concludes that such an order should not be made in the circumstances of the case, particularly where the complainant had commenced proceedings (on 8 July 2013) before the relevant decision had been published (5 February 2014)."

    119th Session, 2015
    International Fund for Agricultural Development
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainants successfully impugn the decision not to extend their contracts upon expiry.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "Of the initial ten applications to intervene, six have been withdrawn. As the remaining four interveners are in a similar legal situation to that of the complainants, they must be granted the benefit of the rights recognised by this judgment (see Judgment 2985, under 28). The interveners are legally represented and they are entitled to costs."

    116th Session, 2014
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant having been allowed to contribute again at the full rate to the pension scheme, the Tribunal need not rule on his complaint seeking the cancellation of the decision to lower the contribution rate.

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    "The Tribunal notes that the complainant, who was obliged to initiate judicial proceedings in order to obtain the cancellation of a decision which the Agency thereafter admitted was unlawful, may at all events legitimately claim an award of costs. As far as determining their amount is concerned, it must, however, be observed, on the one hand, that the proceedings in question were considerably simplified through the rapid withdrawal of the impugned decision and, on the other, that the submission of applications to intervene does not, in itself, give rise to entitlement to an award of costs. In these circumstances, the Tribunal considers it fair to award the complainant 3,000 euros in costs [...]."

    United Nations Industrial Development Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant impugns the implicit rejection of her request for disclosure of a medical report.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "Although the complaint must be dismissed, the Tribunal will not entertain the Organization’s counterclaim to sanction the complainant for abuse of process. Indeed, whilst her unsubstantiated allegations of fraudulent manipulation and misrepresentation are inappropriate, they do not prove bad faith in and of themselves, and as such do not constitute an exceptional circumstance meriting the imposition of costs on the complainant (see Judgment 1962, under 4)."

    113th Session, 2012
    Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 29

    Extract:

    The CTA has asked that the complainant should be ordered to pay its costs on the basis that “the complaint is unfounded”. Without ruling out, as a matter of principle, the possibility of making such an order against a complainant (see, inter alia, Judgments 1884, 1962, 2211 and 3043), the Tribunal will avail itself of that possibility only in exceptional circumstances. Indeed, it is essential that the Tribunal should be open and accessible to international civil servants without the dissuasive or chilling effect of possible adverse awards of that kind. In the instant case, although the complaint must be dismissed, it should not be regarded as vexatious. The Centre’s counterclaims will therefore be dismissed.

    113th Session, 2012
    World Trade Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    Although the other claims submitted in the complaint, which are largely redundant, are not upheld, the Tribunal considers that in the unusual circumstances of this case the complainant is entitled to costs. Given that her employment was terminated unlawfully, she was justified in seeking from the Tribunal some mitigation of the pecuniary consequences of this decision. Whatever the outcome may have been if the Tribunal had had cause to consider the totality of her arguments, to the extent that they cannot be regarded as blatantly vexatious, equity requires that, exceptionally, the complainant should be compensated for part of the costs of the present proceedings, by awarding her the amount of 1,000 Swiss francs.

    International Organization for Migration
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 3 and 7

    Extract:

    The critical issue raised by this complaint is whether the complainant was entitled to reimbursement of income tax levied in Canada on the salary and allowances received by her from the Organization.
    "It is not in dispute that the complainant was informed before she accepted the offer of appointment that she was not entitled to reimbursement of income tax paid in Canada. She claims that the information given to her at that time was false and that at all relevant times the Staff Regulations and Rules provided for reimbursement [...]. In support of her claim she provides a version of Annex A to the Staff Regulations and Rules [...]. IOM produces another version [of the said Annex]."
    "IOM seeks an order for costs against the complainant. Given that initial correspondence with the complainant suggested that income tax would be reimbursed, and given also the confusion relating to the precise terms of Annex A, including that the complainant was provided with a hard copy of the annex in its unamended form, this is not an appropriate case in which to award costs against the complainant."

  • Judgment 2853


    107th Session, 2009
    International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 6-8

    Extract:

    The difference as to the complainant's performance rating was not resolved in internal grievance proceedings and the complainant filed an internal appeal. Having received no response, the complainant sent an e-mail to the Registry of the Tribunal, stating that he wished to file a complaint.
    "It is fundamental that a litigant cannot pursue the same claim before different adjudicative bodies at the same time. Normally, the litigant will be forced to elect the forum in which he or she intends to proceed. That did not happen in the present case. Nonetheless, the complainant pursued his internal appeal to finality and, thus, must be taken to have elected to pursue internal remedies rather than to proceed at that stage before the Tribunal on the basis of an implied rejection of his internal appeal. However, that does not mean that the complaint is irreceivable."
    "[When] the complainant [decided] to pursue internal remedies [...], [his] complaint had already been filed and it was receivable pursuant to Article VII, paragraph 3, of the Statute. Moreover, he then had a cause of action, as his claim was not satisfied until 13 December 2007."
    "Even though the complaint became without object on 13 December 2007, it was receivable when filed and the complainant then had a cause of action. Accordingly, he is entitled, in these circumstances, to the costs associated with its filing, even though not requested in the complaint. However, he is not entitled to costs in respect of subsequent pleadings which were filed after his decision to pursue his internal appeal. There will be an award of costs in the amount of 500 Swiss francs, but the complaint must otherwise be dismissed."

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    "Although the complainant's dignity has been seriously injured, and consistently injured over a period of three and a half years, he has suffered no financial loss and his claims for compensation and for moral damages are excessive. [...] The complainant will be adequately compensated by an award of moral damages in the amount of 25,000 euros. There will be an award of costs of these proceedings and the internal appeal proceedings in the amount of 5,000 euros."
