This may be something that most Criminal Defense attorneys and Health Care Law attorneys (categories chosen for the post) do not casually deal with on a regular basis. It may be more along the lines of professional licensing. You could try reposting under Education Law, which might be a closer... Read more »
I told the parent, “The teacher will be back in 2 months. She’s out for medical reasons… on a restoration of health.” Did I violate HIPPA Laws by saying this??

For any future inquiries, it could avoid misunderstandings to check with the school administration as to what they want you to say. They could have a standard statement that they want the staff to use in such settings. Good luck

This may be more a personal injury law question than one about educational law. I'm sorry about the assault on your daughter. I hope she is okay. These scenarios are fact-intensive and require examination of school's supervision and other factors. I recommend you reach out to law firms to... Read more »

It could depend on the extent of damages resulting from the delay in providing medical care. If the ensuing damages are not significant, many law firms would be unlikely to handle on a contingency basis. Good luck

You're fighting a losing battle. The Supreme Court of the United States has, on multiple occasions, rejected challenges to NYC's vaccine mandate for municipal employees. A challenge to a mandate requiring CUNY students to be vaccinated for in-person learning would likely meet the same... Read more »

If you are merely helping out without pay the I would not consider it employment.

It could depend on what the matter involves. If it's something about an academic issue with a child, an educational law attorney could probably be a first option to consult with. If it involves employment as a teacher, then an employment law attorney. If it involves an injury on school... Read more »

It would be best if an education law attorney advised here, but you await a response for two weeks. Until you're able to discuss this with an education law attorney, keep in mind that in general, the decision could be up to the school. Also, it could be difficult for any attorney to advise...

This is a fairly new area of law, and the rules are evolving as new technologies emerge. Test protocols could depend on the entity administering the exam. If an instructor's rules are not unduly burdensome or invasive of privacy, the academic institution would probably uphold them. A professor... Read more »

These are generally fact-intensive settings, and they can be complex. A central issue will often be whether there was a lack of supervision or negligent supervision on the part of the school (or possibly other entities, depending on the setting). An experienced attorney who had the chance to review... Read more »

I'm sorry your question remains open for three weeks. This could be something that a professional engineer would know better than an attorney. At this point, one option might be to contact the NYS Office of the Professions for Professional Engineering & Land Surveying to ask if they could... Read more »

If this involves something with an estate or will, you might have better chances of a reply in the Probate or Estate Planning categories under New York. But in either case, it would be difficult for attorneys here to reach out to you to help with a lawsuit - this forum does not work like an... Read more »

The decision to suspend your daughter's assailant (and how long to suspend her) is likely in the sole discretion of the school's principal / superintendent. Do not be surprised if you do not have any say in the matter. If the student who attacked your daughter had a history of such... Read more »

It would depend on the regulations of the school district, school, and bus company. In general, principals do have broad authority to audit or inspect activities that affect the welfare and safety of students. Good luck
Even though it's a department of education school and the department of Ed is accommodating teachers, my job is not taking my request seriously nor are they willing to make any accommodation for my religious practice.

Your question does not indicate what your religious accommodation request is. Whether your employer's decision to place you on an unpaid leave is unlawful depends on your accommodation request, whether your request eliminates one of the essential functions of your job, and/or causes your...

Absolutely. That is how they prevent the fraud of a non-resident student trying to get a better school.

I'm very sorry this happened to you. If you're seeking an attorney, it might be more productive to use the Find-a-Lawyer feature above.

This is a serious matter. Having admitted to cheating, you have few options. You must not admit to anything again, and find a way out of this that does lead to expulsion.
