NPH Attorneys Meghan Cooper and Peter Perroni recently won an arbitration to restore the seniority of a Windham, NH Police Officer, a member of NEPBA Local 213. The officer suffered severe injuries in the line-of-duty, forcing him to go on extended leave. He returned to work after enduring multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation, only to find that the Town decided that his seniority date should not include the period of his injured-on-duty leave. After extensive legal arguments by the attorneys, the Arbitrator concluded that the Town’s actions were in violation of the terms of the CBA, and ordered the Officer’s seniority date be fully restored.
