An elderly woman where I work has falsely accused me of trying to force her to go to bed and saying that when she refused I physically abused her. She has four different stories including. I hit her leg, I squeezed her leg, I kicked her foot, and saying that I squeezed her leg and pushed it down and told her that she was breaking the rules by not going to bed. I have been suspended from my job, and there is going to be an investigation of physical abuse. Can I file a suit against her for defamation of character?
You are barking up the wrong tree with "Defamation"...focus on wrongful Termination and consult with an Employment lawyer.
