my question is , is that defamation of character
Employment Lawyer: Attorney2020, Lawyer replied 1 year ago
Yes, it they are telling other that you were fired when that is a lie, that can be considered defamatory. You could sue for damages caused by the defamatory statement. You have one year from the date of the defamatory statement to file a claim. I hope that helped. Please rate my answer so that I may be credited for my time. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
