I attend Herzing University Orlando campus whose corporate office is located in Wisconsin. Herzing is a private, non-profit, secular University. I have been suspended for speech related accusations (asking too many questions) and am wondering if the state of Florida protects freedom of speech at private universitiesJA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: WisconsinJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: to whom?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have also been accused of sending a text message which includes plans to harm an instructor, which I did not do, and have not been allowed to see said message or know it's contents. Additionally, I was not alerted to any allegations prior to walking into a meeting that I was told was regarding a grade dispute, and then having a pretyped letter read to me by the dean stating alegations and indicating the suspension. All of this is contrary to the student handbook as far as how suspension proceedings are supposed to occur

I am a doctorate student at a midwest university and two of

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!
