California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
So what is it you are concerned about? Do you feel you are being defamed by his contact to your friends and inferring that you stole something from him?
I suggest that you should have your local attorney write him a cease and desist letter stating that he is telling untruths about you. That he knows you have returned any and all company property and if he continues to make statements that you have not or are in someway stealing from the company, then you will consider a civil lawsuit for defamation.
A letter of this nature coming from a local attorney on letterhead should have an impact and he should stop what he is saying about you to others. If he feels that he has a case and evidence of the same, he will bring the matter to a civil lawsuit to try to recover the value of the property.
Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a positive rating ensures I get credit for my time and information in this regard.
