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.

  • business law -

    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.

  • business law -

    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.
