My dad recently retired, and I was surprised to hear that he did not qualify for any retiree insurance rates other than "COBRA" rates. He worked at his company for 13 years, then left for approx. 13 months, then worked another 22 years.Supposedly, he was told a) they require 25 years of service to qualify for retiree insurance, and b) his leave of absence was more than 12 months, so his first 13 years of service don't count. Officially he retired with 22 years of service.This seems like a really raw deal to me, and I am wondering what the law requires employers to provide, if anything. How should I proceed from here?(If it makes any difference, his company was in upstate New York.)
