Ok, so if the people that I make this statement to, go back to the institution and begin asking questions based on my statements, it would not give the institution the right to question me and/or press charges?
Also, if the people I make this statement to tell other people that use this institution, which causes more customers to stop using their business (which would be out of my control, if they tell others), would that place me at risk?
Your answers obviously reflect NC correct?
Thanks Ely. This is extremely important that I am clear on what you are saying, so forgive me if it feels as though I am asking the same questions in different ways.
If the people I gave this statement to, go back to the institution and discuss my statements to them, (since the institution will know exactly what I am referring to, due to our experiences with them and things that were said regarding our own child), they still have no grounds to punish us in anyway via slander and/or making a report of any kind?
