    66th Session, 1989
    European Patent Organisation

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3, Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant argues that because she had 55 months' seniority at step 11, the upper limit, in her original grade, she should have been granted two further steps on promotion. The Tribunal observes that the Staff Regulations do not provide for the calculation of notional steps in dealing with promotion.

  • Judgment 943


    65th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant was promoted from grade A.3, step 11, the highest step in that grade, where he had twelve months' seniority, to grade A.4, step 8, with no seniority. He claims the right to have the twelve months' seniority carried forward. The Tribunal holds that the claim is groundless. In accordance with the Service Regulations the complainant was promoted to "the lowest step in A.4 which carried a higher basic salary than what he had received at his step in A.3 increased by one twelve-monthly incremental step in that grade."

  • Judgment 294


    38th Session, 1977
    Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    At issue is a new salary schedule with additional steps in the complainant's grade. "The Director-General was right in thinking that the rule could not be interpreted in a way that would equalise the effect of the change. Where he was wrong was in thinking that he had neither the power nor the duty to equalise the effect of the change by some other means consistent with the principle that the object of the salary scale is to reward length of service and experience. [...] The change [...] required some transitional provision to cover exceptional cases and it was the duty of the Director-General to make such provision."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    The complainant reached the highest step in her grade some years ago. An amendment was adopted introducing three new steps in her grade. She should obtain the successive increments on the date at which she fulfilled the requisite conditions. The Director-General should take steps to ensure that a) the complainant is treated as if at the time the modification was implemented she had been at step XIV for a period of five months and b) each intervener is treated in the same way, according to length of service.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    "It is of course inevitable that, if a salary scale has a maximum figure, there can be no further reward for length of service after the maximum has been reached. Whether this is fair or not [...], it is the same for all."
