Filing a Lawsuit for Slander in the Workplace

In Missouri, you have the right to a fair and respectful workplace where you are treated with kindness and appreciation. If you are constantly slandered by others in the office, this is not a health work environment and you may be able to sue. Slander is defined as oral or spoken defamation of another.

Oftentimes it involves a false statement about another person that tends to cause them harm. It can be hard to prove slander, because there are not commonly witnesses to slanderous proceedings. Also, every American has the right to speak freely, so it can often be difficult to actually prove why the slander occurred.

If you are a victim of workplace slander then you will want to look up the Missouri-specific laws on the subject and talk to a Missouri employment law attorney for more information. To prove that you are a victim of slander, you will need to show that someone made a false and unprivileged statement and that this statement resulted in damage to you. Oftentimes you will also need to prove that the statement was made with actual malice in order to get the lawsuit started.

Whenever you decide to sue for slander, you will need to consult with an attorney. If you are dealing with a workplace case, then an employment law attorney may be able to help you. You will need to show how the slanderous comment damaged your reputation and made it difficult for you to continue working in your former environment.

Once you fashion a legitimate argument, you will need to go to court and bring all evidence and witnesses that can support your claim. If you want more information, then you will need to discuss your situation with a Missouri employment law attorney at The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley. With the right hardworking attorney on your case, you will be able to prove that you were mistreated and should receive compensation as a result!
