i WORKED FOR GE FOR 12 YEARS. I LEFT TWO YEARS AGO ON GOOD STANDINGS SO I THOUGHT. I AM CURRENTLY WORKING FOR A CLEANING COMPANY WHO HAS A CONTRACT WITH GE TO CLEAN THE BUILDING. GE POLICY IS THAT OLD EMPLOYEES CAN COME AND PICK SOME ONE UP BUT THEY CAN'T COME INTO THE BUILDING WHERE PEOPLE ARE WORKING. I WENT INTO THE BUILDING ONCE AND THE FACILITIES MANAGER CALLED MY EMPLOYER AND TOLD THEM THAT I WAS A BAD EMPLOYEE AND THAT I LEFT IN BAD CIRCUMSTANCES. AND HE DID WANT ME IN THE BUILDING WHICH WAS FINE WITH ME. THE OTHER DAY I WENT TO PICK UP A FRIEND TO TAKE THEM TO LUNCH WHO WORKS AT GE BUT DIDN'T GO IN THE BUILDING HE AGAIN CALLED MY CURRENT BOSS AND TOLD ME I WAS A WORTHLESS EMPLOYEE AND I WASN'T ALLOW IN GE. I KNOW FOR A FACT THE OTHER FORMER EMPLOYEES HAVE PICK EMPLOYEES UP FOR LUNCH AND NOTHING WAS SAID. MY QUESTION IS DO I HAVE ANY LEGAL ACTION I CAN TAKE AGAINST THE FACILITY MANAGER? I DON'T THINK IT IS RIGHT FOR HIM TO TALK BAD ABOUT ME TO MY CURRENT EMPLOYER. THE ONLY THING GOOD OF IT IS THAT MY CURRENT EMPLOYER KNOW THAT I AM GOOD EMPLOYEE
I GUESS I AM JUST TIRED OF HIM BAD TALKING ME TO MY CURRENT EMPLOYEE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE ISSE IS BUT I FILL THAT HE IS CARRYING THIS TO FAR.

I understand you are upset about the situation and that you believe taking legal action may be your only option here. But, I'd like to you think more practically about this for a moment. Is there a way that you can avoid a lawsuit here? Have you attempted to discuss this issue with the facilities manager at GE? Perhaps you can write him a letter and request that he stop making such statements. What does your current boss say about the situation? My point is that you do not necessarily need to go the legal route.
However, if this is impacting your professional reputation (especially if you lose your current job) you should consult an experienced defamation attorney in your area. It appears that you may have a case.
