Mr. Peters has a solid track record of helping businesses become or remain union free.

Mr. Peters regularly advises clients about human resource policies and procedures. He has also conducted internal investigations regarding discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and bullying, including Title IX investigations.

Mr. Peters excels at identifying a desired result and implementing strategies to secure it. He navigates all aspects of employment law, including disability accommodations, leaves of absence, hiring, firing, discipline, job descriptions, wage & hour issues, and exemption classification to find the right solution for each client.
