New Haven Attorney for Defamation of Character in the Workplace

Defamation refers to any intentional false communication, whether it is written or spoken, which decreases the respect or confidence in which a person is held. Defamation induces disparaging or hostile feelings against the person for which the lies have been told. Defamation encompasses both written statements, otherwise known aslibel and spoken statements, called slander.

While interoffice gossip occurs frequently through spoken words, loud statements, emails, and through social media such as Facebook and Twitter, a defamatory statement or intentional lies can be extremely injurious to an employee's reputation, their career, and their livelihood.

Often, slanderous statements will be made against an employee stating that he or she has a contagious disease such as HIV, that they have committed a criminal offense, that they are unchaste or committed adultery, or that their professional reputation is called into question.

Slanderous statements against a person can cause irreparable damage and lead to:

  • Emotional distress
  • Harassment from coworkers
  • Job loss
  • Lost income
