    Extracts: EN, FR

    Considerations

    Extract:

    "[T]he Tribunal is satisfied that the [...] decision to transfer was taken purely in the interest of the organization.

    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    The complainant's appointment was terminated on the ground that the necessities of the service required the abolition of the post. "The relevance of the reason given is a matter which falls within the discretion of the Director-General, and in principle the Tribunal is not competent to rule on the expediency of action taken by the organization in the light of the necessities of the service to fulfil its aims. It follows that the Tribunal may not substitute its own judgment for that of the Director-General in respect of the desirability of continuing complainant's employment, having regard to the necessities of the service."

    "[W]hile as a general rule employees in a given grade must be assigned to work normally done by members of that grade, it is within the discretion of the Director-General, provided that there is no change in the grade or reduction in salary, nor any lowering of the dignity of the persons concerned, to assign them to work done by lower-grade employees if the needs of the service so require".

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    Under the applicable provision "the Director-General clearly has discretionary power to determine whether the continued employment of a staff member is contrary to the interests of the organization or not; it follows that any decision taken under [the applicable provision] does not come within the Tribunal's power of review unless" [...]; the Tribunal may not substitute its own judgment for that of the Director-General in regard to the work or conduct of the person concerned or his suitability for international service.

    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    On the occasion of the partial renewals of her contracts, the complainant was advised to improve her performance. In concluding that the complainant's performance was still unsatisfactory and that her appointment should not be extended beyond the date of expiry, the Director-General gave a ruling which exhibits none of the flaws which may cause the Tribunal to interfere with such a decision. It has not, in particular, been established that the critical observations made of the complainant's work were based on materially incorrect facts.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 4-5

    Extract:

    The complainant made use of statements in the proceedings before the Tribunal "as tracts designed to discredit [the organisation] and the Administrative Tribunal." His actions could not have been directed to defending his freedom and rights. They were undoubtedly related to "activities exercised by [him] as an official of the organisation; as such they constituted serious misconduct and were consequently such as to justify the legal application of a disciplinary sanction [...] the free choice of the sanction to be imposed was within the Director-General's discretion."

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "The decision impugned was taken on the basis, in particular, of the reports of her two [...] chiefs; these reports deal with specific points which are not invalidated by any of the evidence in the dossier. From these facts as a whole the [...] Director [...] could conclude that complainant's service was unsatisfactory, without exceeding his discretion. However, his decision was taken only after he had personally heard [the complainant], who was given the opportunity of fully defending her views."

    Consideration 5(B)

    Extract:

    "Having conformed to his two-fold [statutory] obligation [to hear the opinion of the ad hoc committee and to base himself on the standards observed in other international organisations] the Director is free to exercise his discretion in carrying out the responsibilities assigned to him. It follows that the Administrative Tribunal must confine itself to determining whether" [at issue is the classification of posts].

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The Tribunal's review has brought to light no irregularities.

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    In exceptional circumstances the Director-General must be able to dismiss an official whose services are satisfactory in the interest of the organization. "It is for the organization to satisfy the Tribunal that such extraordinary circumstances exist. If the organization satisfies the Tribunal of this, the power arises. It is then for the Director-General to decide whether in these circumstances the interests of the organization require the termination of an officer's appointment and the Tribunal will not interfere with that decision unless [...]".

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    Clause (vi) of the material provision stipulates that the appointment may be terminated in the interests of the organization. "The power in clause (vi) cannot be read as an absolute power exercisable in all cases, but must be read subject to a condition limiting the type of case in which it can be exercised. The condition must be framed in the light of the fact that the power will normally be used in the case of a satisfactory officer, since an unsatisfactory officer can normally be dealt with [under clauses (i) to (v)]."

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    The decision of the Director-General to terminate the contract upon expiry of the probationary period was based "upon his conclusion that the services of the complainant had ceased to be satisfactory.

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 27

    Extract:

    The payment of family allowances is abolished in certain cases, although the entitlement has simultaneously been extended and the rates increased. The decision-making body, "far from infringing [the complainant's] rights, merely altered the conditions for the grant of family allowances within the framework of a family welfare policy which it is entitled to establish. Moreover, the changes are in general favourable to the interests of those concerned. The complaint is therefore not justified in this respect".
