    Summary

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

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "The organization [...] accepts as a term of every contract of appointment its duty to respect freedom of association, and anyone who has such a contract may challenge any decision that impairs that freedom. What the complainant is saying - indeed it is the sole issue - is that the organization acted in breach of freedom of association. His complaint is therefore receivable insofar as he is suing in his own name."

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    The list of those to whom the Tribunal is open as given in Article II[6] of the Statute of the Tribunal "is exhaustive. For one thing, it does not include bodies that have legal personality. For another, even supposing the association, though it is an official body, did not have personality in law but was just a de facto group, it does not hold a contract of appointment with the organization. On both counts it does not have access to the Tribunal under Article II and the complaint is irreceivable insofar as it purports to be a party."

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    "Under Article VII[1] of the Tribunal's Statute a complaint will not be receivable unless it challenges a final decision or, under VII[3], an implied one. Since the organisation did not take an express final decision within 60 days of the date on which the complainant notified his claim by letter of 4 June 1987, his claim is receivable under VII[3] in the same manner as one challenging an express final decision."

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

    Consideration 6

    Extract:

    The complainant wants the Tribunal to make recommendations on how to interpret certain provisions in the rules. "Besides stating his claims in vague and general terms the complainant is not seeking the quashing of any decision but mere recommendations in the form of advice to be commended to some unidentified person or authority. The Tribunal may neither give an advisory opinion nor rule on a dispute in which no breach of the terms of appointment or of the Staff Regulations is alleged. For that reason the claims are irreceivable."

    Keywords:

    advisory opinion; cause of action; competence of tribunal; complainant; interpretation; receivability of the complaint; request by a party; staff regulations and rules; tribunal; vague claim;

  • Judgment 887


    64th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 8-9

    Extract:

    Certainty of the position in law requires the complainant to state clearly what it is he wants. The Tribunal observes that in both his internal appeal and the present complaint, the complainant has failed to indicate the specific documents or type of document he wished to have included in his personal file. Nor has he made clear the reasons for his action. In the present state of the dossier, his complaint is an abuse of the right of appeal under the Statute of the Tribunal.

    Keywords:

    cause of action; complaint; elements; no cause of action; personal file; receivability of the complaint; vague claim; vexatious complaint;

    Considerations 7-8

    Extract:

    "Appeal will lie either against an express decision, described as an 'act adversely affecting' the official, or against rejection inferred from failure to answer a claim. In the latter case, where the decision is implied, the prerequisite is the lodging by the official of a formal appeal with the administration."

    Keywords:

    complaint; condition; decision; failure to answer claim; implied decision; internal appeal; internal remedies exhausted; receivability of the complaint;



  • Judgment 886


    64th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 15

    Extract:

    "Since the rights Mr. B. is relying on in his application [to intervene] were ruled on once and for all in Judgment 855, the res judicata rule bars him from raising the same issues again by other means and his application is therefore irreceivable."

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    "Since the complainant failed to file his internal appeal in time his complaint is irreceivable. According to Article VII of the Statute a complaint is receivable only if the internal means of redress have been exhausted."

    Reference(s)

    ILOAT reference: ARTICLE VII OF THE STATUTE

    Keywords:

    internal appeal; internal remedies exhausted; receivability of the complaint; time bar; time limit;



  • Judgment 879


    64th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 13-14

    Extract:

    "The res judicata rule applies to an intervener because by the very act of intervening he espouses the complainant's case. It is true that there are some arguments which he puts forward again and which those judgments did not address. But that does not mean that the conditions [...] for applying the res judicata rule are not met: between this case and the earlier ones there is identity in the parties, in the purpose of the suit and in the cause of action."

    Keywords:

    consequence; effect; intervention; receivability of the complaint; res judicata; same cause of action; same parties; same purpose;

    Consideration 2

    Extract:

    "What the complainant challenges is a final decision against which he had no internal means of redress within the meaning of Article VII[1] of the Statute of the Tribunal, and he respected the time limit in VII[2]. His complaint is therefore receivable."

    Reference(s)

    ILOAT reference: ARTICLE VII, PARAGRAPHS 1 AND 2, OF THE STATUTE

    Keywords:

    decision; direct appeal to tribunal; internal appeal; internal remedies exhausted; no provision; receivability of the complaint;



  • Judgment 860


    63rd Session, 1987
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    As to identity in the cause of action, Mr [A.] notes that the Tribunal had in part rejected the complainants' plea of breach of good faith on the grounds that they had taken up duty after the new criteria had taken effect. Mr [A.] contends that this reasoning does not apply to him insofar as he had taken up duty before the change in rules. The Tribunal acknowledges that there is on this point a new cause of action; however it holds on the merits that a staff member has no right, save in exceptional cases, to demand that the rules on promotion in force at the time of appointment should never be modified.
