I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.
There is little that you can do to prevent her from making trouble for the two of you at work.
If the photos are incriminating of an adulterous affair, or she can prove the adultery, then you might as well get ready for the flood of gossip. If you are guilty, it would likely be in your best interest to confront your supervisor with the information before they learn through the grapevine---it will be less painful in the long run. If the photos are innocent, and she spreads untrue stories, lies of adultery and it really is
a lie, you might sue her for Defamation.
From a legal standpoint, defamation is the issuance of a false statement about another person, which causes that person to suffer harm.
1. Slander typically involves an oral (spoken) representation.
2. Libel involves the making of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as the internet, a magazine or newspaper.
In order to win a defamation case, you must prove the following:
- A false and defamatory statement was made about an individual;
- The statement was made to a third party;
- If the defamatory matter is of public concern, (for example if you are a famous person) fault amounting at least to negligence on the part of the publisher.
- Finally, you must show that you have suffered damages.
