I see. Thank you for clarifying the situtation for me, Jeff.
Under these circumstances, you can either wait and see whether the employer takes any action against you or the other employees, or retain a local employment law attorney to get involved in the employer's investigation.
If it is determined that the employee's are engaging in defamation or intentionally attempting to interfere with your employment relationship, then your attorney could intervene and communicate a cease and desist to both of them, indicating a lawsuit will follow if they do not immediately retract their false statements and apologize. That can often resolve such situations where the employees do wish to avoid litigation.
Since the employer can be held liable for your actions though, they do have an interest in taking this very seriously and preventing any inappropriate touching in the workplace. Because of this, it is generally best for you to retain an attorney, but you could wait to see whether the employer takes any action against you.
If it were me, I would retain an attorney now as it usually pays to be proactive rather than wait until action is taken by the employer.
