FICSA has organized an English-speaking Workshop “What Are My Rights?” covering the law and procedure for appeals of adverse administrative decisions in organizations in the common system subject to the jurisdiction of the ILO Administrative Tribunal (ILOAT Track Appeals) which will take place in Geneva on 14 and 15 June 2017 at a venue which will be confirmed directly to the participant.

The workshop will be presented by Attorney Laurence Fauth, FICSA Legal Advisor.

The workshop is open to staff representatives and participants irrespective of their duty station of assignment and will run from 09h00 to 17h00 on Wednesday and 09h00 to 16h30 on Thursday, with an hour for lunch each day.

Workshop programme

The workshop is aimed at enhancing staff representatives’ knowledge, expertise and confidence in effectively advising staff members who are considering appealing administrative decisions; the workshop focuses on the institutional framework, law and procedures applied both during the internal appeal process within international organizations of the UN common system and by the ILO Administrative Tribunal. Participants will develop skills to identify and assess the chances of successfully pursuing an appeal, including identifying the law applicable to the challenged administrative decision and available remedies, following applicable procedures and drafting appeal statements.
