competence; summary procedure; special service agreement; ratione personae; complaint dismissed

Consideration 3


The complainant states in the complaint form that she filed the complaint in her capacity as a former official. However, according to the express terms of the SSA under which she was employed, the complainant did not have the status of a WHO official. As the complainant cannot be considered as an official or former official of WHO and is not covered by WHOs Staff Rules and Regulations, she has no access to this Tribunal (see Judgments 3705, consideration 4, 3551, consideration 3, and 3049, consideration 4).

Consideration 5


The Tribunal notes, as it did in Judgment 3551, that clause 15 of the SSA provides for arbitration if necessary, and that there is no time limit provided for in relation to the submission of the dispute to arbitration.
