What is the name of your state? Missouri
I worked six months as an Administrative Assistant at a bank through a Temporary Agency. I was told that the position was indefinite. My work was always satisfactory.
I was told by my Supervisor that I was released from my assignment because they didnít have anymore work for me to do. However, when I filed for unemployment benefits the Temp Agency raised an issue against my claim stating that they were told by my Supervisor that I was released from the assignment because I missed days from work to attend court, and the assignment was incomplete, but I was welcome to come back to the bank. I was outraged when I found out about this statement from the Temp Agency. I told the State that was not true and gave my side of the story. The State ruled in my favor and now Iím receiving unemployment benefits.
Recently, I found out from a permanent employee in that they sent another temp in my place as an Administrative Assistant from the same Agency. I think that is really unfair. Right now I canít even find work, and the Temp Agency hasnít called me back for any more job assignments because of this incident. Can I sue for slander against the supervisor. The problem isÖ she lied about the reason I was released from the assignment, and damaged my relationship with this Temporary Agency. I have a witness that can verify she lied about reason I was released from assignment. Also proof which is the letter of recommendation I received from this flaky Supervisor.
Can anyone tell me if I have a good case and can sue regarding this matter? I would like to be compensated from the Bank for all this time Iíve been out of work, and have the Supervisor suspended and/or removed from her position because of her unethical actionsÖ.
