Can I sue a coworker for slander

Jamaica, NY |

I was written up by employee. He said I was harassing him n made it hard for him to complete his work om time, when I was answering questions that he asked. The fact that he didn't understand the work was the issue. The company has audio n video cameras that can prove his claim is false. Can I sue for slander. This fell under the harassment policy
