When an employer makes a false statement, which damages your reputation, for example, questioning your integrity or your ability to do your job, you may have a right to sue for defamation or slander. Defamation may occur when an employer accuses a worker of illegal conduct in explaining a firing to co-workers, when providing a reference to a potential new employer, or in a public statement. The lawyers at AK+G have successfully tried defamation cases and have mediated claims of damage to reputation.
