No Another employee I work with at a differnt job and I found he was using the phone system to lessen in on my parts room desk. I told on him and he has told them at this work place that I am a F up so the last 2 times i have worked there they have tried to set me up and get me out.

Thank you for the additional information.

If another employee is making false statements about you, you can sue them for defamation. Actually, you would start with a cease and desist letter to anyone making these false accusations.

If this does not get a retraction, you will need to file suit for defamation. This cause of action is specifically for damage caused to one's reputation. To establish a prima facie case of defamation, four elements are generally required:

1. a false statement purporting to be fact concerning another person or entity;

2. publication or communication of that statement to a third person;

3. fault on the part of the person making the statement amounting to intent or at least negligence; and,

4. some harm caused to the person or entity who is the subject of the statement.

This involves complex litigation and it is strongly advised that you retain local counsel to assist you in protecting your rights before taking any action in this matter.

If you need assistance in finding an attorney, contact your state or local bar association. You can also try Martindale Hubble. Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:

It seem that I would be better off to go after Harrasment no one wants go after them on slander. But I need someone to stand


up for me.

It is a very difficult situation. Perhaps the HR department could help.

Otherwise, you just need to be strong and do your job well.

Thank you.
