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.

I am currently working for a publicly traded company that

Hello,I am currently working for a publicly traded company that administers utility programs. The programs are structured with specific guidelines for product specifications/installations.There is a central data base that we all use to track accounts and progress, the data base is suppose to be updated to stop people from working on accounts that are already in progress. The data base is constantly out of date, in several documented instances I was working on a major national account and was told after putting together substantial reports and efforts to back off the account. The company does not lose revenue because the other party still places the work through the parent company. I have many documented examples of the mishandling, missclassification of activities.I have been summoned to meeting for tomorrow to discuss performance, I have not been told recently of any issues. Currently I am interviewing for a new position and concerned that if I am terminated tomorrow that this could have adverse impact on my new career opportunities. My performance has been hampered by these issues as well.How would you suggest handling a possible prickly situation in a friendly manner / neutral?Thanks....If there is an attempt to terminate my position I will suggest an exit interview for severance, health care and a letter stating that we parted on amiable terms and also to speak about positively about my tenure and reputation
