  • Judgment 4085


    127th Session, 2019
    World Intellectual Property Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The complainant challenges the decision to reject her harassment grievance.

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    It is observed that the complainant supports this complaint detailing events from 2007 to late 2014 and raising issues in a manner which violates the general principle of law that a person cannot simultaneously litigate the same issues in separate or concurrent proceedings (see, for example, Judgments 3291, under 6, and 2742, under 16).

    119th Session, 2015
    Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR
    Summary: The Tribunal found that the decision to dismiss internal appeals concerning a claim for compensation for service-incurred disability was flawed.

    Consideration 10

    Extract:

    "[I]nasmuch as he sought to litigate the third complaint in the Tribunal when the same matter was before the Appeals Council, that aspect of his fourth complaint which arises out of his second internal appeal (of 9 October 2010) challenging the decision dated 22 September 2010 will also be dismissed. It breached the fundamental rule that a litigant cannot pursue the same claim in concurrent proceedings (see, for example, Judgment 2853, under 6)."

    107th Session, 2009
    World Meteorological Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    [T]he question of harassment was raised in the complaint leading to Judgment 2742 but not then finally determined. The Tribunal noted that, by then, the complainant had filed a formal complaint of harassment with the Joint Grievance Panel and filed written submissions with it in support of her claim. The Tribunal indicated that principle “dictate[d] that a person cannot litigate the same issue in separate proceedings” and further noted that, although the complainant’s claim of harassment was properly before the Tribunal, its determination should await consideration of the other complaints which had then been lodged. As neither party argues for any other course, it is appropriate to proceed on the basis that the claim of harassment stood over by Judgment 2742 is subsumed in [V.] No. 4. It will, however, be necessary to refer again and in some detail to some of the matters that were discussed in that judgment.

    International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 6-8

    Extract:

    The difference as to the complainant's performance rating was not resolved in internal grievance proceedings and the complainant filed an internal appeal. Having received no response, the complainant sent an e-mail to the Registry of the Tribunal, stating that he wished to file a complaint.
    "It is fundamental that a litigant cannot pursue the same claim before different adjudicative bodies at the same time. Normally, the litigant will be forced to elect the forum in which he or she intends to proceed. That did not happen in the present case. Nonetheless, the complainant pursued his internal appeal to finality and, thus, must be taken to have elected to pursue internal remedies rather than to proceed at that stage before the Tribunal on the basis of an implied rejection of his internal appeal. However, that does not mean that the complaint is irreceivable."
    "[When] the complainant [decided] to pursue internal remedies [...], [his] complaint had already been filed and it was receivable pursuant to Article VII, paragraph 3, of the Statute. Moreover, he then had a cause of action, as his claim was not satisfied until 13 December 2007."
    "Even though the complaint became without object on 13 December 2007, it was receivable when filed and the complainant then had a cause of action. Accordingly, he is entitled, in these circumstances, to the costs associated with its filing, even though not requested in the complaint. However, he is not entitled to costs in respect of subsequent pleadings which were filed after his decision to pursue his internal appeal. There will be an award of costs in the amount of 500 Swiss francs, but the complaint must otherwise be dismissed."
