e Applicant was hired by the Internat ional Labour Organization (“ILO”) i n 2010 at
grade A-1. She served the Organization’s oce in Mexico under a series of shor t-term con-
tracts, act ing as coordinator of the “Stop Child Labour i n Agriculture” project. Followi ng a
mid-term evaluation on the progra mme, in April 2012 the Applicant was informed about
the Director-General ’s decision not to extend her contract beyond June2012. She chal-
lenged that decision before the ILO admi nistrative authorities, alleg ing that the Director-
General was required u nder national law to refer the decision on the renewa l of her con-
tract to the Federa l Board of Conciliation and Arbitration (“FBCA”). e ILO administr a-
tive authorities reached the conclusion that t he Applicant was entitled only to monetar y
compensation.
Against this de cision, the Applicant led a complaint with the FBCA, w ithout refer-
ring the case to t he ILO Administrative Tribunal. In declini ng its competence over the
case, the FBCA specied that the ILO enjoyed jurisdictional immunities as an interna-
tional organization in compliance with the relevant treaties and in accordance with the
memorandum sent by the ILO to the Permanent Mission of Mex ico to the UnitedNations
Oce and other international organizations in Geneva. e Applicant impugned the
FBCA’s decision through a d irect appeal to the Mexican Fourt h Collegial Tribunal of the
1 Ms. Idalia Peña Cri sto, President, Ms. Guad alupe Madrigal B ueno and Mr. Victor Ernesto
Maldonado Lara , Judges.
