Action brought on 16 April 2007 - Klug v European Medicines Agency

(Case F-35/07)

Language of the case: German


Applicant: Bettina Klug (London, United Kingdom) (represented by: G. Grupp, lawyer)

Defendant: European Medicines Agency

Form of order sought

Order the defendant to extend the applicant's contract of employment of 7 February 2002,

order the defendant to pay the applicant damages for pain and suffering in the amount of EUR 200 000,

order the defendant to annul the applicant's staff report from 31 December 2004 to 31 December 2006 and to decide anew in the light of the findings of the Tribunal.

Pleas in law and main arguments

The action is based on Article 12(a) Title II of the Staff Regulations of Officials (harassment). It alleges incorrect exercise of discretion regarding the applicant's staff report, infringement of the Agency's procedural rules on drawing up a staff report, and, as a result, that the Agency unlawfully failed to extend the applicant's contract of employment.

The applicant asserts in support of her action that owing to the harassment and lack of objectivity in the assessment of her work, her work deteriorated and thus her five-year contract was not extended.
