This book examined the Role of ILO Administrative Tribunal in Promoting and Protecting the Contractual Rights of International Civil Servants. This is due to the fact that officials of International Organisations are acting within the parameters provided by the rules of procedure of the organisation and terms of their contract of employment and are not subject to labour laws enshrined in national legislations, which are arguable in municipal courts. This book will also answer questions on whether the ILOAT has created an internal environment with adequate due processes to ensure that best practice standards for fair trial of defaulting or aggrieved international civil servants are guaranteed. This book equal demonstrated the fact that the ILOAT, though with a broader jurisdiction, is not the only administrative body addressing the grievances by employees of international organisations but the United Nations Administrative Tribunal (now reformed as United Nations Dispute Tribunal and Appeals Tribunal) has also played a similar role in addressing conflicts between staffs of the United Nations who alleged non-observance of contracts or terms of employment by the UN or its Agency.
