Pellerin v. Kern County Employees' Ret. Ass'n, F049335

If an employee qualifies for a service-connected disability retirement based on a statutory presumption that his or her heart condition arose out of his or her employment, and the county employees' retirement association awards the service-connected disability retirement because it cannot rebut the presumption, then the association cannot issue a contemporaneous finding that the employment did not substantially contribute to the disability.
