Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the World Bank Administrative Tribunal and the Asian Development Bank Administrative Tribunal. The governing rules for the staff members of the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank are thus very much of the Banks' own unilateral making and are not a product of collective negotiation with an employee representative. The chapter touches briefly upon other substantive rules that have been developed by the Tribunals. One is that employment decisions based on invidious discrimination, either toward the individual or the class to which he or she belongs, are unlawful and will be overturned. Both the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank have stated that principle as part of their employment policies, and both Tribunals quickly took the opportunity to state that they had the jurisdiction to hear discrimination and harassment claims, and to remedy any such wrongdoing.
