Nolan Perroni PC Wins Health Insurance Arbitration

NP Attorney Peter Perroni has recently won an arbitration decision in favor of the NEPBA and a disabled member of its Salem, NH police Local. In this case, Salem attempted to withhold retiree health benefits from an officer who was separated from employment after he had applied for disability retirement because of an on-duty injury. Attorney Perroni successfully argued that the reasons for the termination from employment did not allow the Town to avoid its contractual obligation to pay the employee's health care because he was forced to retire because of an on-the-job injury. As a result of the ruling, the officer and his family will now be entitled to the health benefit worth hundreds of thousands of dollars over the officer's lifetime.
