Is this Slander, How do I help?
Asked May 19, 2010, 12:13 AM
If an employer accuses an employee of distibuting or selling drugs in his office and makes the accusation in front of many other employees in the middle of an employee meeting without proof is that slander? What should the person accused do?
In the middle of a fit regarding sales the owner of the company I work for fired one employee for "being high" and accused another of supplying drugs to the office. He yelled at the woman in front of everyone. She is a mom and is scared to quit because she is afraid of fighting for unemployment. He did not provide any proof or even take action against her but he did make this statement in front of all of us and I know its not right but is it slander?
