Advocating For Employees Affected By Defamation
Employees may recover the damages they suffer as a result of the defamatory comments made by either their current or former employer about them. A defamatory comment is one that is false.
In the employment context, defamatory comments are often made about an employee during:
- An investigation
- A disciplinary event
- A firing
- A post-termination reference
Employees can suffer significant damage as a result of defamatory comments, such as a loss of employment opportunities and/or reputational harm.
