A former room mate and co-worker has decided to contact people at the companies she knew I was applying for to tell them that I am currently a stoner (I have not touched any marijuana in over a year) and that I am lazy and don't do my work. She is also the reason that I have lost my last job. Before she left, she blamed everything that went wrong on me and made the ground work for me to get fired only 2 months after her departure. Her friends had continued the head hunt.
Since I have proof of all of this, can I get her for slander? She has cost me many, many jobs now and has made me lose the respect of family (she also lied to them). She is threatening to call CPS with supposed proof (a picture of two of HER marijuana pipes on her kitchen counter) and get my daughter taken away.
