I was discriminated against badly at my workplace because I

Resolved Question:

I was discriminated against badly at my workplace because I challenged management about very dangerous and life-threatening situations. They terminated me with many lies, three times. Twice I was reinstated with full back pay through Union Grievance Arbitrations, the third time the judge chose to believe the perjured testimony and upheld the termination. However, now two of the people who perjured themselves have admitted that they did so through coercion by management.

I am suing the corporation in New York Supreme Court for discrimination and retaliation for whistleblowing. But I also wish to sue, separately, some of the individuals who perjured themselves so badly against me. I have suffered both financially, physically and emotionally quite a lot.

Can you suggest what might be the best claims to use in an action against these employees?

they would be in contempt of that oath and of the court order to appear and testify

I understand that in NY State, there is a statute of limitations for defamation of 1 year. Some of these offenses happened about 18 months ago. Is there anything that can be done about this? You mentioned other possible claims, such as tortious interference with employment and contract. This would certainly apply in this case.

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 1 year ago.
A tort claim has a 3 year statute of limitations. While defamation has a one year time period you may argue that it is a continuous tort that continued into the last year, if that is the case. I trust that helps. Kindly click on a positive excellent rating for the answer.
