Defamation of Character
Defamation, sometimes referred to as defamation of character, occurs when an individual's character or reputation is tarnished as a result of a fraudulent statement or action of another individual. Defamation can be broken down into two types: spoken, which is called slander, and written, which is called libel. In relation to the workplace, defamation normally causes harm to a current or former employee's character, reputation, or career on the basis of a fellow employee's false statement or act.
A lawsuit intends to compensate the subject of the defamation for real harm done to their career or reputation, as well as any harm that resulted from a changed relationship with third parties due to the defamatory information.
