These statements were stated over phone text. This female employee accused me of implying she be an escort for dating services. I did not say that. Then she reported it to the owner of her company, she also added she now feels scared and uncomfortable around me. There is now a warning to their employees not to work with me. I have a bunch of people that know my character thinking I said this sexual term to their employee. They will not hear out my side of the story and now I am being targeted.
If you are a co-worker of this woman, your only option is to fully cooperate in any workplace investigation and hope you are believed. If you are not an employee, your only recourse would technically be a claim for defamation, assuming you could prove her statements were false.
Good luck to you.
