    106th Session, 2009
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 4-5

    Extract:

    "The principle of good faith and the concomitant duty of care demand that international organisations treat their staff with due consideration in order to avoid causing them undue injury; an employer must consequently inform employees in advance of any action that may imperil their rights or harm their rightful interests (see Judgment 2116, under 5). This duty of care is greater in a rather opaque or particularly complex legal situation. [...] When the complainant took up employment with the Office it had been possible, for at least a year, to obtain the transfer of pension rights from the USS to the Office's pension scheme. But it is clear from the file that the applicable rules were so complex that a mere perusal of the documentation would not enable employees to understand them fully. Furthermore, the Administration and staff members were still largely unfamiliar with the possibility of transferring pension rights. In the light of these particular circumstances, the Office's duty to inform could not be confined to merely handing the applicable texts to the staff members concerned by a possible transfer. This duty demanded that the Office, having obtained such information as was necessary, should draw to the attention of the staff members concerned the possibility of obtaining a transfer of pension rights and should inform them of the procedure to be followed."

  • Judgment 2527


    101st Session, 2006
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 9-10

    Extract:

    "Article 12(1) of the Pension Regulations allowed the transfer of pension rights acquired by employees under a pension scheme prior to joining the Office only 'provided that that scheme allow[ed] such transfers to be made'. In the present case, it appears from the submissions that the INPS has not yet accepted the transfer to the EPO of pension rights acquired by employees who, like the complainant, were affiliated to the Italian state pension scheme. However regrettable it may be that employees of the Office in the position of the complainant are left at a disadvantage, the Office cannot be blamed for not amending the provisions of Article 12 at the risk of having to bear the costs of the transfer: the consent of the Italian authorities is clearly necessary before any such transfer can take place.

    Nevertheless, the Organisation must not have shown negligence or ill will in submitting the problem raised by the complainant to the Italian authorities. It emerges from the submissions, however, that the Italian authorities were approached unsuccessfully in 1992 and 1998 and [again in] 2004 [...]. The Organisation cannot therefore be accused of having 'blocked' the situation and the complainant is not justified in deeming its conduct to be unlawful."

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The Organisation "expresses doubt as to the locus standi of most of the complainants, who are still far from the age of retirement [...]. In fact, all the complainants, regardless of their age, have an obvious interest in ascertaining as soon as possible the conditions on which the pension rights acquired by virtue of their employment prior to joining [the Organisation] may be transferred to their new pension scheme."

    Consideration 20

    Extract:

    "There is no general rule requiring the [CERN Pension] Fund to pay interest on the transfer value [of pension entitlements]. So the Fund was free to rely on the text of its own rules, which do not expressly provide for interest, and on consistent practice."

    69th Session, 1990
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    The complainant left employment in a private company to join the staff of the EPO and applied for the transfer of his pension rights to the organisation's retirement scheme. The company agreed to refund the contributions he had made but would not transfer the actuarial equivalent of his pension rights. Inasmuch as Article 12(1) of the EPO Pension Scheme Regulations and Implementing Rule 12.1/1(i)(b) only allow the transfer of those rights with the consent of the previous retirement scheme and that in such cases the amount must be certified by that scheme to be the actuarial equivalent of the official's pension rights, the organisation's retirement scheme was not empowered to accede to the complainant's request.

  • Judgment 360


    41st Session, 1978
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The application, by analogy, of the rules in force in the bodies of the European Communities "would be warranted only if the [...] rules [of the organisation] overlooked the point in dispute, in other words if they failed to contain a provision which had apparently been left out by omission."

    Keywords:

    analogy; applicable law; enforcement; exception; law of european communities; no provision; rule of another organisation; transfer of pension rights;

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "The complainant alleges that he received a promise from the Director of personnel [...] at the time of his appointment. There is no need to question that official, who has now retired, to establish that no such promise was made." It appears from the complainant's correspondence that he "merely discussed the question of acquisition of pension rights in the hope that the competent bodies would take a decision in his favour. No trace is to be found of any real promise. Had the complainant been given one, he would presumably have produced it."
