The professor posted a copy of the father’s complaint onto his university website and encouraged his students to discuss the issue, which further escalated the situation.The college informed Peterson, 61, last week that he would not be needed for classes next semester. Peterson immediately tendered his resignation and says he intends to sue the university for infringing on his free speech rights.When contacted by the Tribute Herald, the school’s vice chancellor for academic affairs said he couldn’t discuss the issue or comment on personnel action.Do you watch your language in the workplace?
