  • Judgment 1401


    78th Session, 1995
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    Article VII(3) of the Tribunal's Statute "cannot apply to the Appeals Committee, which does not make administrative decisions but is an advisory body, with representatives of both management and staff, which submits mere recommendations. It is the Director-General who takes the final decision on the Committee's recommendation."

  • Judgment 1393


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

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    "There is no reason of public policy why an organisation should not entertain a claim, even when it is premature, pending the notification of an individual decision. That is the approach that the EPO took when, instead of warning the complainant forthwith that his appeal was premature, it entertained his claims - just as it entertained all the others - and forwarded them, after what it described as preliminary study, to the Appeals Committee. So it was in breach of good faith in objecting to receivability before the Committee at a time when the time limits set off by its individual decisions had already run out. The Tribunal accordingly holds that under the circumstances the complainant is right to plead that he was caught in a procedural trap."

    77th Session, 1994
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    "Even if disciplinary proceedings have begun there can be no 'act adversely affecting' an employee within the meaning of Article 107 [of the Service Regulations] until the proceedings are over and there is a final decision by the competent authority. So the complainant's internal appeals were premature insofar as he lodged them before the President had taken his decision [...] on the Disciplinary Committee's report."

    77th Session, 1994
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    "It is true that Article VII(1) of the Statute provides that a complaint will not be receivable unless the complainant has exhausted such other means of resisting the decision as are open to him under the applicable Staff Regulations. But it is plain from the case law that the Tribunal construes that article to mean that when a complainant has done all that is required of him to get a final decision, yet the proceedings appear unlikely to be concluded within a reasonable time, he may appeal directly to the Tribunal".

    Consideration

    Extract:

    "This complainant does not impugn any final decision. [It] is therefore clearly irreceivable, and the Tribunal dismisses it as such in accordance with the summary procedure provided for in Article 8(3) of the Rules of Court."

    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant, who got assurances from the ILO that it was not going to fill a post in which he was interested, alleges on the basis of a list of staff movements that the organization had filled the post without holding an internal competition. It turns out that the list contained an error, of which the ILO failed to give the complainant notice, and the post had not been filled. The Tribunal holds that he did not suffer any injury on account of the alleged decision he impugns, but holds that the ILO left the matter uncertain for several months. There being no decision for the Tribunal to quash, his claims fail save the one to an award of costs.

    Consideration 16

    Extract:

    "According to the case law, where a complainant does everything necessary to get a final decision but the appeal proceedings appear unlikely to end within a reasonable time, he may go to the Tribunal. Rulings to that effect are to be found, for example, in Judgments 451 and 499."

    74th Session, 1993
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant impugns the implied rejection which he infers from the organisation's silence on an internal complaint he logded against its refusal to take account of university degrees which he acquired while in the organisation's employ. Eurocontrol submits that the complaint is irreceivable on the grounds that a "complaint" may only be directed against an act adversely affecting an official. The Tribunal holds that "the complainant's letters to the Director General were mere statements of grievances that had no particular purpose" since he does not identify any duty towards him under the general conditions of employment that Eurocontrol may have failed to discharge there cannot have been any "act adversely affecting" him and for want of an appealable decision, even implied, his complaint is irreceivable.

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The complainant is challenging a report submitted by the Joint Appeals Board. "The report [...] plainly does not constitute a final decision within the meaning of the UNIDO Staff Regulations and Staff Rules. The complaint is therefore irreceivable under Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute."

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    Under challenge is a passage from a memorandum which the complainant alleges changed the duties of her post. She seeks the quashing of that text. Such a claim is irreceivable. "A staff member may challenge a text only if it amounts to a decision and affects him adversely. [...] The fact of the matter is that no decision was taken and her claim to the striking out of the [text] cannot be entertained."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "The complaint is irreceivable because the decision impugned is not a final one: the complainant has failed to exhaust the internal means of redress, in breach of the requirement in Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute."

  • Judgment 1203


    73rd Session, 1992
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 2-3

    Extract:

    The complainants went on strike and the organisation sent them an "open letter" and individual letters drawing their attention to their obligations under the rules. Those are the letters they impugn. According to Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute what a complainant is required to impugn is a "decision". "As was held in Judgment 112, a plea to quash may be directed only against a decision, that is, 'an act deciding a question in a specific case'. And in Judgment 532 the Tribunal construed the term to mean 'any action by an officer of the organisation that has a legal effect'. In sum, a decision is any act by the defendant organisation that has an effect on an official's rights and obligations." In this case "the Tribunal finds nothing in either the individual letters or the open one that it may properly construe as a 'decision' within the above definition."

    71st Session, 1991
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "By the date of filing [his first complaint], 15 March 1990, the complainant had lodged with the organisation one request for review under Article 13.1 of the Staff Regulations and another under Paragraph 15 of Circular 334 [on personal promotion]. Only afterwards, on 2 April, did he file an internal 'complaint' under Article 13.2. So he has failed to exhaust the internal means of redress as Article VII(1) of the Tribunal's Statute requires him to do." The first complaint is irreceivable.

    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant challenged the reckoning of her pension in the internal appeal. Having obtained satisfaction after she filed her complaint she withdrew her main claims but presses her claim to moral damages and costs. The Tribunal considers her complaint premature because it challenges a decision which was stated to be provisional, and the withdrawal of her main claim makes her claim to damages void. Nor is she entitled to costs.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    On 15 March 1990 the complainant's counsel wrote to the Director-General asking him to grant her the benefit of termination on abolition of post. In its reply of 29 March CERN indicated that the matter was being examined. The complainant filed her complaint on 21 May 1990 under Article VII(3) of the Tribunal's Statute. As no rejection of her claim be inferred in the circumstances of the case, the complaint is premature.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant contends that he was entitled to costs inasmuch as he was granted satisfaction pendente lite and because his complaint was receivable at the date of filing. The Tribunal holding that his appeal was premature and therefore irreceivable, his claim for costs fails.

  • Judgment 858


    63rd Session, 1987
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 24

    Extract:

    The complainant "decided that it was not necessary to appeal in accordance with the rules and get a final decision. His arguments justifying his inaction are not well founded. His decision not to pursue an appeal was made deliberately and on legal advice, and he was not misled by the organization: the appropriate rules were supplied to him. His explanation is without merit and unacceptable."

    Keywords:

    absence of final decision; internal remedies exhausted; receivability of the complaint;

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant was informed on 9 March 1984 of the decision not to extend his sick leave, confirming the date on which he was to be separated. The complainant lodged a protest by letter on 25 July 1984. Although that letter was not in the usual form of an appeal, the organization agreed to treat it as one. The organization's well-meaning offer was expressly turned down by the complainant. His refusal brought an end to contacts between the parties and the complainant never obtained a final decision from the Director-General.

    Considerations 3-4

    Extract:

    At the date on which the complaint was filed, the organisation "had not yet taken any challengeable decision, there was no more than a recommendation by the Appeal Board [...] But the complainant put the mistake right not only within the time limit for filing the complaint but also within the one for correcting it which the registrar set [...] In the interests of fair process the correction will be allowed."
