Defamation, Libel, or Slander
Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates have represented clients sued by their employers for slander and libel. An employer can bring a lawsuit against an employee who verbally or in writing defames, or falsely accuses them of unlawful or inappropriate behavior that damages their reputation. If the employer falsely accuses the employee of defamation, libel, or slander in retaliation for reporting unlawful or inappropriate behavior, the employee has the right to bring suit against the employer.
We work with clients who have been falsely accused of defamation, slander, or libel by protecting their right to report unlawful, inappropriate, or discriminatory behavior by an employer.
