  • Judgment 1915


    88th Session, 2000
    International Atomic Energy Agency
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 18-19

    Extract:

    A comparison study of language proficiency between the common system staff and outside employers was attacked by the complainants because the required level of proficiency is higher in the common system. "The Tribunal holds that it is not necessary to achieve a perfect match between outside jobs and those in the common system. There must merely be sufficient similarity between these jobs."

    Consideration 14

    Extract:

    "The dropping, and even the phasing out, of the language factor is a decision that ignores the peculiarities of the employment market in Rome. It therefore amounts to breach of the right of general service staff to one of the terms of employment - namely pay - that must [...] be 'among the best in the locality without being the absolute best'."

    64th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    Following a promotion, the complainant was no longer entitled to a language allowance. In its place she was awarded a compensatory payment after an eighteen month delay. She regards the language allowance as part of her salary and seeks the grant of a further step. As in Judgment 737 the Tribunal dismisses her claims but awards her costs because of the delay in payment of compensation to which she was entitled.
