I have been falsely accused of something by someone on my job what do I need to do?

Asked 11 months ago - Huntsville, AL

An email was sent to my Project Manager that there was a confrontation with me and another individual but his was not the case. There was three of us present and no one stated any of this so I believe this is coming from someone or somewhere else.

That doesn't make the statement defamation, and it doesn't make the statement compensable. What is more, the employer is not required by law to believe you, even in the absence of proof. Don't make more of this than it is.
