I was recently accused of engaging in inappropriate activity with a member of the opposite sex behind closed doors. Apparently a complaint was filed by another employee who supposedly "walked in on us." I believe this is a malice attack on my character as nothing of the sort has EVER occurred. The HR person refuses to believe anything I have to say. They are taking the word of the complaintant with no proof. I got told "Why would this other person have any reason to lie about this." I am unsure of what HR is going to do but I have a SPOTLESS record here at work and do not want this tainting my reputation or my work record.Is there some rights I have to face the person accusing me and rights as far as filing a grievence with LRB for false statements made against me with no proof? Help!In answer to your questions, yes there was two of us accused and both of us blatantly deny the accusations. The other individual basically told management the same thing "It never happened." What I meant was the employer is believing the accuser over BOTH of us. I wasn't interested in actually filing a suit, I just wanted to know what my rights were as an emlpoyee and who I could file a grievance with if this issue is pursued by the administration. I have never put myself in a compromising position nor will I ever. Thank you for your assistance. And I actually did post this in the slander category. :)
