Staff Matters n°22

In this newsletter we report about a case in which the Court annulled the Commission’s decision to terminate a contract of indefinite duration. The annual appraisal reports, upon which the Commission had also based its decision, did not contain a specific reference to an unjustified absence of the applicant. The Court was further of the opinion that the applicant was not given a chance to restore the relationship of trust with the service within the given, short period of time.

Note : This judgment was annulled by the Court of Justice. See supplement in Staff Matters n° 23.
