My boss has been very crude towards me and is relentless

My boss has been very crude towards me and is relentless with questions to provoke me. He told me to stop the BS for a question he personally asked me with multiple others cc'd on the email. I was answering him honestly and didn't think anything I said was derogatory. He has been like this from the beginning however it is getting worse, like asking me to add e.g. 32 + 68 when it's clearly obvious I am more than capable of doing that. I am very cordial, kind and only doing my job. I am the research manager at our office. Can I do anything as I feel like he is harassing me? or do I start looking for another job which is a tremendous inconvenience. I was hired by another Doctor to work on his clinical trials and this other physician who is the president of the company, the physician who hired me is the Research Director, the other physician decided that I could take on his work as well even though I explained I couldn't do all of the work on my own and we would need to hire a research assistant. He has gotten to the point where he harasses me with emails everyday.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There's so much, that is it for now.

How do I figure out a demand request based on the following:

How do I figure out a demand request based on the following: I had traumatic ruptures in both my neck and back from a tractor trailer road rage incident last July 2, 2015. I have had many weeks of physical therapy followed by epidural shots in my neck and back. Finally had neck surgery in April of 2016 and back surgery July 15, 2016. The neck surgery was a disc repelacement and the back was a disc replacement at 2 levels plus a fusion and bone graph. I am still home recovering from that surgery, still on pain meds and cannot travel till January 2017. I was also diagnosed with PTSD and on medication. The state of NJ as approved me as permenantely disabled. The trucking company requested I make a demand offer and I think my current attorney went to low...any suggestions?

I was falsely accused by a co worker, she told HR that I said my boss was having an affair, which I never said. I was demoted and believe I have been unfairly accused, what can I do.Just a little about the incident: I work as a kindergarten aid at a private Catholic school. The Priest Father Jerry Regan is over the school, Joe is the principal and Ann Marie is the athletic director. Joe and Ann Marie are the two I supposedly said were having an affair. Father Jerry ask me to meet him in the church office with HR and told me someone had said that I said Joe and Ann Maire were having an affair. I told them I have never said anything like that. Father Jerry waited three weeks to tell Joe and Ann Marie were disciplined and I was to report to mothers day out about half the pay.

I live in Phoenix, AZ. I was terminated this past Thursday

I live in Phoenix, AZ.I was terminated this past Thursday by my supervisor. His reasoning was 'differences in management philosophies'. I was written up once for not following his direction but never for anything else. All performance reviews were 'achieve expectations'.Do I have a right to go after compensation for wrongful termination? Clearly there is more to story but overall need to understand my options. When I say more the environment he was creating was very hostile and vendictive.
