Character Defamation – Libel And Slander By Co-Workers Or Employers
- Did you get fired because a co-worker, supervisor or manager made false statements about you to your employer or someone else?
- Did someone at work wrongfully accuse you of being dishonest or stealing?
When future employers call your previous employer for a reference or background check, is your previous employer saying negative things about you? California laws allow employees like you to sue their employer for defamation (slander or libel) if they are terminated because a supervisor, manager or co-worker made false statements about them — either in writing or verbally.
The law allows you to right the wrong and recover money damages if someone has done damage to your professional reputation by defaming you.
