  • Judgment 1775


    85th Session, 1998
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 12

    Extract:

    According to the complainant, the way he accepted the offer of employment did form a binding contract. The Tribunal considers that "[the complainant] must show an unqualified agreement and meeting of minds between the Organization and himself on the essential terms of a contract of employment. The Tribunal is unable to read [a telex from the complainant to the Organization] as anything but a counter-offer on one of the most essential terms of the proposed contract, namely remuneration. Certainly, it cannot be said to be an unqualified acceptance and the fact that it is couched in terms of a claim of right does nothing to change its character; a potential employee does not have an automatic right to any particular grade or step and an offer which specifies one figure of salary cannot be accepted by a claim to a higher figure: see Judgment 228 [...]."

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

    Considerations 15-16

    Extract:

    "Whatever his rank was in the programme the complainant was entitled to appraisal that was in keeping with the written rules or at least so far observed due process as to afford him the opportunity of adding any timely comments of his own for entry in his personal file. [...] [T]he conclusion is that for want of any properly made appraisal there is no objective and reliable means of reviewing the grounds for non-renewal. The impugned decision cannot stand."

    International Telecommunication Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 14

    Extract:

    ITU Staff Regulation 3.8 (a) lays down two conditions regarding the payment of a special post allowance: "one is that there must be a post at a higher grade than the claimant's; the other that the claimant must be performing the duties of the post. The Union adds a third condition, that the post description must be recent. But it is wrong: there is neither a written rule nor any particular basic principle that lays down that requirement."

    World Tourism Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    The complainant says that her transfer amounted to a hidden disciplinary measure to get back at her because she asserted her right of appeal. "The Tribunal is satisfied that there was no question of disciplinary action": she herself applied for the transfer and it cost her no loss of pay or grade or responsibility. "Nor does she allege any loss of dignity in the duties she had to perform."

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

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    The complainant objects to the grade she got when she took up her appointment. The Tribunal observes that the vacancy notice stated that the post could be filled at that grade. "She accepted the offer, before being actually appointed, both by her answer to [the organisation's offer] and by signing the letter of appointment. She thereby surrendered her right to challenge ex post facto any clause of the contract of service which she freely consented to and which was the prerequisite of her becoming a Eurocontrol official.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant pleads that he had been promoted from grade G.7 to P.2 "even though he was drawing the post allowance. It is immaterial whether or not the conditions in which he was granted the allowance met the requirements of Regulation 3.8: suffice it to observe that he acquiesced and amply reaped the benefit for most of the period during which he received the allowance. So the Tribunal cannot allow his plea that he was promoted."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant objects to the career path on which CERN assigned him when it brought in a new system of advancement. He says CERN relied on his grade - 8 -, whereas it did not give a true indication of the quality of his work. "The plea is irreceivable since it amounts to challenging his promotion to grade 8, a decision he has never demurred at in an internal appeal and which has therefore become final."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    The complainant was transferred to a new post. He alleges that the transfer was unlawful, his new duties being at a lower level than those he had formally discharged. "Whether the post is 'commensurate' with his former post and grade depends on an objective test, namely the level of his duties. He has failed to satisfy the Tribunal that their level is not in keeping with his grade, which was the same after as before transfer."

  • Judgment 1234


    74th Session, 1993
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    The complainant, an official at grade D.2, was moved twice in 18 months but given no explanation for the moves. His second transfer was to a post at a lower grade, some distance from headquarters and in a field he had never worked in. "Although the Director-General will ordinarily be treated as the best judge of what the organization's interests are and the Tribunal will not ordinarily interfere in his assessment of them, nevertheless it will do so in this case. It is quite inadequate to plead that the decision to transfer the complainant was 'in the interests of the organization'. The basis for reaching that conclusion must be made clear so that the Tribunal may exercise its power of review and determine whether there exists any of the grounds for setting aside a discretionary decision of that kind."

    Consideration 19

    Extract:

    The complainant, an official at grade D.2, was moved twice in 18 months but given no explanation for the transfers. His second move was to a post at a lower grade, at some distance from headquarters and in a field he had never worked in. The organization pleads that his transfer was "in the interests of the organization" and that the burden is on him to show that it was not. "But there it betrays a deeply mistaken view of its duty. Of course its own interests are paramount, but it must still, for the sake of proper management and mutual confidence, treat its staff fairly. If it is transferring a staff member it must let him have a degree of responsibility corresponding to his grade and respect his dignity. It must give him a statement of the reasons for the transfer and the opportunity of responding."

    Considerations 12-13

    Extract:

    The complainant was transferred against his wishes to a post at a lower grade, D.1, but kept grade D.2 on a personal basis. The Tribunal confirms what it said in Judgment 631 about staff Rule 570 on reduction in grade. That provision - which says that reduction in grade may result (1) from the staff member's own request, (2) from unsatisfactory performance or misconduct or (3) as an alternative to termination in a reduction inforce - applies even when the staff member keeps his own grade on a personal basis. "The organization may not require a staff member to move to a post at a lower grade against his wishes, however generous the financial compensation, unless there is compliance with Rule 570."

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

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The complainant submits that the decision to offer him an assignment to a lower grade than he wished and without the benefit of an indefinite appointment discriminated against him insofar as four officials appointed to the same post got the higher grade. "But none of the four is in like case. Either they have served longer than he or have different qualifications or have won a competition or have a much better record of performance. He adduces no evidence to show unlawful discrimination, and his plea is dismissed because it is devoid of merit."

    European Organization for Nuclear Research
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    The complainant failed to have her post upgraded. Her plea of disregard of relevant facts fails. "The essential point is that, though the complainant's duties might warrant an upgrading if she showed a higher degree of responsibility, initiative and judgment, it was proper to take the view that she did not, and therefore her post does not warrant the higher grade." The Tribunal holds that, despite the difference of opinion, there was evidence on which such a judgment could be based and will not substitute its own view on the matter for the organization's.

    Summary

    Extract:

    At the time of his promotion to grade P.2 the complainant held a permanent appointment at grade G.5, as well as a fixed-term appointment at grade G.7 while drawing a special post allowance corresponding to P.2. The Tribunal holds that because he had never had a permanent appointment at G.7 his promotion was from G.5 to P.2.

    European Patent Organisation

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    The complainant contends that his professional experience was not properly reckoned in accordance with Circular 144 of 2 September 1985. He alleges breach of the principle of equal treatment inasmuch as his seniority was lower than that granted to someone with equivalent professional experience recruited as an A3 examiner. His plea fails "because the material provisions of the service regulations deal with promotion within the organisation as distinct from the attributions of grade and step on appointment: the comparison he is drawing is between staff members who are not in the same position in law."

    Consideration 2, Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant was promoted from grade A.2 to grade A.3 as from 1 March 1987. He submits that the promotion should have taken effect as from 1 August 1985, the date by which his credited experience had come to eight years, in accordance with point ii.2 of Circular 144. However, as required by Article 49[7] of the EPO Service Regulations, the complainant also had to have at least two years' service in his grade in the office in order to qualify for promotion. As the complainant did not meet the latter requirement until 1 March 1987, the Tribunal held that the impugned decision was correct.

  • Judgment 862


    63rd Session, 1987
    International Labour Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    Article 3.1.1.2 of the ILO Staff Regulations provides for periodic adjustments to pensionable remuneration. The application of this regulation was suspended effective 1 April 1985. The complainants argue that the absence of an adjustment on 1 April 1986 breaches their acquired rights. "The complainants say they cannot put a figure on the loss sustained but they submit a table showing losses that range from 13 to 39 per cent according to grade. The table does not distinguish between loss due to the measures of which the Tribunal was informed in the earlier proceedings - and which it declared lawful - and loss alleged to be due to the failure to revise the scale on 1 April 1986. So in any event the Tribunal cannot but endorse its ruling in Judgment 832 under 16." The complaints are dismissed.

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    The complainant objects to her transfer from a G.7 post she held in the document services branch to the post of assistant cashier at the same grade because the new post did not suit her qualifications. The Tribunal holds that "the transfer did not cause the complainant any drop in grade, so that her basic rights under the Staff Regulations are unimpaired. The only question possibly at issue is whether her new post comprises duties and responsibilities that warrant G.7 and, as the organisation has explained, there is no question but that it does since the duties of assistant cashier have always carried that grade."

    58th Session, 1986
    European Patent Organisation

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    In 1984, after the President of the Office adopted new rules to take account of the Tribunal's case law, the complainant was awarded a further step in his grade and additional seniority. He is asking that the impugned decision take effect not as from 1 January 1984 as called for by the new rules but as from 1 June 1982, the date when he took up his appointment. The plea fails. The Tribunal observes that, far from discriminating, the impugned decision corrects an existing element of inequality and if there remains inequality it is due to the terms of the complainant's appointment, which were not challenged within the prescribed time limits.
