The whistleblower suit filed against the Town of Peterborough by former Deputy Town Clerk Gayle Bohl has been ordered to seek alternative dispute resolution.

Bohl originally filed a civil complaint on Oct. 20, 2020, after she resigned in late September, alleging an unsafe and hostile work environment under her supervisor, Town Clerk Linda Guyette. Bohl and her lawyer requested a jury trial at the time to consider their allegations of wrongful discharge and a violation of whistleblower protections.

A mediator was assigned to the case within a case structuring order dated Jan. 5, 2021, and the parties have until October 2021 to complete the alternative dispute resolution, Samantha Heuring, Bohl’s lawyer, said. Peterborough Town Administrator Nicole MacStay said the town’s lawyer had advised them not to comment on the case. Defendants are requesting a trial for February 2022, according to court documents.
