On 3rd November 2014, Lee Marler from Bretton Woods Law gave a presentation at a World Bank town hall meeting organised by the Staff Association. The meeting took place in the Preston Auditorium at the World Bank’s headquarters in Washington DC and was streamed live via video link to thousands of employees in the Bank’s country offices around the world. Bretton Woods Law’s presentation was on whether or not the World Bank, following discussions by management around cost efficiencies and savings, could cut the benefits (including education grants, home leave and the separation grant upon termination) of staff who joined the organisation before 1998. The benefits of these staff members are different from those offered to staff who joined thereafter. A month after the town hall meeting in November of last year, Senior Management of the World Bank confirmed its decision to leave these pre-1998 benefits intact and not to review them for the foreseeable future. Bretton Woods Law considers this decision to be a well-deserved victory for the Staff Association following its hard work over the last two years to protect the acquired rights of its members.
