If a employer gives a reference to another person by stating what you did in you previous postion, could you have a claim of defamation of character or claim of invasion of privacy or a unfair labor practice.
I believe it is a defamation of character, am i correct?

Wouldn't that depend upon what the employer said?

They said that you did a decent job for them but that you could have worked harder.

Ahh! That makes a difference.
Probably that is defamation of character.

So, would this be more defamation of character or invasion of privacy. The employeer also stated that he was late to work on different occasions.

I don't see how it's invasion of privacy. Being late for work and not working very hard are not private affairs.
When a person asks a former employer to give a reference, then s/he has given permission for information about his/her job performance.
