i recently lost my job. I've found out from former co-workers that my employer is telling them that I was discharged because I stole from them. This is an untrue statement, and they're telling it to everyone. They also claim to have me stealing on tape. This is impossible. Not only have I never stolen from them, this is not the reason I was given for my termination. Is there anything I can do about this? I would hate to think that others would think that I did these things. Should I request to see the tape?(I know one does not exist). in short, is there anything I can do about my former employer spreading false imformation about my termination? I have to live in this community, and there are lies being spread by my prev. employer.




If you can prove that the emplyer is making false statements, then you have a valid case in defamation. You could sue for damages, and you could also get a restraining order to have the employer stop telling the lies.
