If someone gets fired for making the statement "harrassment is the major reason kids bring guns to schools". Is that a just cause? I did my research and "assault" is saying or doing something with the intent to commit harm. Example-"pointing a gun at someone". My manager a few years ago even ask me if "I wanted to die" for asking him about filing a grievance about harrassment.. so is that also in fact considered "assault"? I'm thinking of bringing a lawyer in on this.
