Any kind of defamation that negatively impacts your occupational reputation can be legally actionable. Defamation in an employment setting can occur when a former employer makes false statements about a former employee. Defamation can also take place when an employer fires an employee on the basis of something that is untrue. In many cases, new forms of social media, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, are part of the basis of defamation claims.
California Law Offers Powerful Protections to Victims of Defamation
Under California's Labor Code, if a former employer tries to prevent you from gaining employment by misrepresenting something about you, they are guilty of a crime. Further, you have the right to pursue a civil claim against your former employer as well. Our lawyers understand all of the laws in this field of law, and will help you present a strong case on your behalf.
