Staff Matters n°4

This issue of Staff Matters will focus on the invalidity allowance. The applicant in case RI / Council, having worked for several years as translator for the Council, suffered from health problems at her left hand. The procedure to acknowledge her illness as an occupational disease under Art. 73 Staff Regulations (SR) was successful, while the Council refused to acknowledge that her permanent invalidity under Art. 78 SR also resulted from an occupational disease.
