My ex girlfriend posted a bunch of lies about me on my works Facebook page. This caused my employer of 5 years to terminate me. Just two weeks after I won employee of the year. My ex is admitted to trying to get me fired. She is also threatening to contact my family and harass them with screenshots of our previous conversations.
If they published items were provably false and caused you harm, you may have a cause of action against your ex. However, the likelihood of recovering any monetary damages from an individual is usually fairly low because libel/slander usually aren't covered by insurance, which is usually the ultimate source of settlement/judgment funds.
File a protective order against the Ex. Hire an attorney for the protective order as well as the civil suit for what she said. You will want to hire an attorney for the termination of your employment. Unfortunately, Oklahoma is an At Will Work state and the employer does not need cause to fire you.
