I am a doctorate student at a midwest university and two of my peers have "ganged up" on me and told my Chair that I am erratic and not being professional. I have emails and texts to prove that I have been exceedingly professional even though we have personal differences. They even went so far as to have their desks moved to the other side of the building to prove a point. I have endured bullying and a hostile work environment but I just kept being professional. NOW I am being told I most likely will not be funded for my last semester at school to dissertate which affects my education and future employment. I don't know what to do about this because this impacts my student loans, removes the chances of getting my PhD because I cannot afford the out of state tuition, and my job opportunities will be limited.JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: Indiana and about a yearJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have spoken to my adviser who said just keep being professional but I was blindsided today when my chair told me she had a couple of reports of me being erratic (that would be Jean and Linda saying that).JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I had an accident last semester and had to cancel two classes and that is now being used against me in conjunction with these false claims

I work for Macy's and was suspended on Friday because I

I work for Macy's and was suspended on Friday because I failed to make a deposit at the end of the night. I was carrying many purchases as well,and I have racked my brain thinking of how I could have set it down or dropped it on my way to the coat room safe. I have been with the store since 2006 without incident. I did not steal any money, and never would. That said I was suspended for further investigation, while they look at the cameras etc. I was told to call Employee relations within 48 hours. I am concerned about keeping my name clear, defending my character and not having a theft charge on my employment record. I signed a promissory note because the deposit was my respnsibility. Even though I am a top performer, my mistake does violate Macy's code of conduct. I would like to fight for my job, however I feel that I will be fired anyway since Mi.Is an at will state. Is there anything I can do? Do I need an Attorney, since the envelope.from security states that.the Prommisory Note does not preclude the possibility of criminal prosecution. Thank you!

May the wife of a lawyer who is a notary sign a POA in the state of Maine? Is there potential conflict of interest there?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And just to clarify, what paperwork has been filed?Customer: Durable Power of Attorney, State of Maine, with the Principle with diagnosed with Alzheimers.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There are presently 7 lawyers involved. The POA was just released to opposing lawyers approximately 5 months after it was signed. I am a Registered Nurse who will not hire a lawyer, yet have taken my Mother out of a situation where she was being financially exploited, as well as physically abused. Very complicated.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Essentially is there a conflict of interest for the wife of this lawyer who prepared the POA, who obviously was aware of my Mother's declined cognitive level, to notarize this POA? It was asked for for month's and then just produced at a hearing which was about Probate issues. Again without going into all the sordid details, I have gone this route so I do not have to spend hours researching codes of conduct for both lawyers and notaries in the state of Maine. I am not looking for legal advice, just information that I am sure is available to me.

I run a non-profit corporation for youth sports. We (the board of directors) voted to not invite a volunteer coach back for the upcoming season due to complaints from our league, the officials association, other coaches and a number of the parents. This individual has been arguing the situation ever since he was told he would not be invited back but his son was still welcome to play with us if they chose. There was an additional meeting after the decision to listen to his supporters (4 of 36 families) and the vote was still to support the majority of our 93 family team and not invite him back. Since that time he has continually called some board members, given organization information such as protected email addresses to other, sent the decision to some families asking them to contact the league which they have. The league has told us they will stay out of organization business. He continues to spread fallacies, rumors and private information. Does he have the right to continue to slander the organization just because he was a volunteer?
