  • Judgment 402


    43rd Session, 1980
    World Health Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "In some employments there are unavoidable risks. [...] The question in each case is whether the risk is abnormal having regard to the nature of the employment. In a case such as the present a reasonable test (though this is only one possible criterion) might be to consider whether an insurance company could, because of the civil war [...] properly demand an additional premium for cover against the risk of injury [...]. If so, the risk would be abnormal."

    Keywords:

    duty station; insurance; special hazard; working conditions;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    An abnormal risk "might be quite a sensible risk for a man to take who had a sufficient motive for taking it. But an employee is not obliged to run abnormal risks for the benefit of his employer, at any rate unless he is given insurance cover."

    Keywords:

    insurance; organisation's interest; special hazard; staff member's duties;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "The employee does not have to show that he was being asked to do something foolhardy. It is unnecessary [...] to suggest [...] that the order to return to [the duty station] was irresponsible. It was not, except in the sense that it may be irresponsible to require a staff member to return to a high risk area without offering him full insurance cover. Certainly, it might be said to be irresponsible for a man with dependants [...] to go [...] without full insurance cover."

    Keywords:

    complainant; duty station; insurance; liability; organisation; special hazard;



  • Judgment 317


    39th Session, 1977
    Universal Postal Union
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    According to its Regulations, the Provident Scheme is a fund within the meaning of the Swiss Civil Code "and it is therefore an independent legal entity distinct from [the organisation] itself." Had the complainant wished to impugn a decision of the Secretary of the fund, "she ought to have brought her complaint against the Scheme, not the [organisation]. But the complaint is brought against the [organisation], not the Scheme, and so would be irreceivable."

    Keywords:

    competence of tribunal; decision; domestic law; insurance; receivability of the complaint;



  • Judgment 264


    35th Session, 1975
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations

    Extract:

    The complainant is right in claiming from the organisation "reimbursement of the difference between the amount to which she is entitled in respect of her husband and the amount to which her husband is entitled as an employee" of the Railway Corporation. The material provision is applicable, according to the general principles of existing law, even in the absence of express provision, irrespective of the sex of the official. If the official is a woman her husband should benefit from the sickness insurance if he does not himself benefit in his own right from a more favourable or equally favourable scheme.

    Keywords:

    amount; complaint allowed; dependant; difference; illness; insurance; insurance benefit; right; supplementary coverage;

    Considerations

    Extract:

    Under the applicable provision "an official's spouse is included among those who may be regarded as a staff member's dependant and as such is covered by sickness insurance. Such an interpretation of [the provision] reflects the actual situation of the spouses, who owe each other a duty of mutual assistance and who, when both are in gainful employment, may be regarded as mutually dependent."

    Keywords:

    definition; dependant; illness; insurance;



  • Judgment 173


    26th Session, 1971
    European Organization for Nuclear Research
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "The present complaint concerns the rate of disability pension payable under the regulations of the [organization's] staff insurance scheme [...] issued on the basis of the [...] staff regulations and rules and [...] regarded as forming part of them. The Tribunal is therefore competent to hear the complainant's claims. It is immaterial that [the regulations of the scheme] make no express provision for appeals to the Tribunal. Whatever the material legal texts in the light of which the complaint should be examined, the Tribunal's competence derives from its own statute."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:
